Hey guys! Can someone comment about experience and gotchas of hosting with Contabo.com?
They seem very affordable, but have a pretty “old-school” admin panel and offer to install Plesk or Webmin.
Does it even make sense to install such tools (if I’m not going to host apps like Wordpress or resell hosting on the same machine)?
What are the benefits and downsides of using Plesk or Webmin or some other admin tool on the server dedicated for Discourse instance?
What is the recommended and sufficient set of tools to install for monitoring and maintenance of a Discourse-only machine?
I’m new to such tools and will appreciate any advice on good server management and monitoring practices.
EDIT: I reviewed the following topics, but still your input to questions above is very appreciated.
