We actually use webmin ourselves. Although, we do not give the users any access to control panels whatsoever. The major thing they use them for is setting up mysql databases, and we make them ask us to do that for them. Since most users don't need to do this, it really isn't much of a support burden. The biggest support burden with users is getting them to figure out how to use their FTP or whatever file transfer software, or publish-shit button on frontpage (thank the maker that MS finally officially struck that product, so we can get away with punting on support of ancient free copies of this. People who can't figure out frontpage don't have any business making websites) Ted _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
