Re: Reinventing the wheel
Thank you for all ideas,

first,
if i heard before about dtc, i may join it, maybe not... i am no sure...
but it is late hereafter

second,
i try to encourage people for development of ehcp...
so i try to become a team... curently the only develooper is me...

third,
ehcp has a philosopy, which many other panels does not have:
easy...
easy usage,
even easy programming...
what means this: there are many programs, addons, panels, or features that i may integrate into ehcp.. but i dont.. because being easy usage and easy programming is important for me...

many features in ehcp is implemented only in a few lines of php code, the biggest feature is about 20-30 lines... (subdomains.. )
that is, ehcp is extremely easy to program too...

nevertheless, i am ready to any collaboration, ehcp or dtc or any other thing... programming is my hobby, is my love... :)

No, this was not what I was saying. It was more: why are you starting from scratch ALONE and not TEAM WORK with others (not especially with our project, there's some others as well), as the workload is quite huge, and that after years of work in our control panel, I know this is all but a one man's work.

We'd be really so happy to have another valuable contributor, there is enough work for every one. I saw so many projects that started, had few options for ftp and email, and then the author gave up. I just hope this wont be the case if you continue your current project, because this would mean a lot of waste.

Re: Reinventing the wheel
Thank you for your response,
i heard first about dtc. Before, i already looked for some control panel in debian, php based and so on...
i just download dtc,

by the way,
asking "why a new control panel while there is one ? "
sound like,
"why another car if there is many" or "why linux when there is windows..."... so on..

i will look and analyse dtc, and will work for its development if i can....
if its philosophy is better, why not switch to it ?

thank anyway..

If you use Debian, you then might be aware of our work on this field then. Have you ever type "apt-cache search control panel" under SID? Ever heard of our panel? Seems that many of the concept you are talking about are already implemented in our work.

The only part that we don't have in the above mentioned feature is OOP, but we would have been pleased to rewrite things. I've started to clean things on or project, but there is a lack of somebody else to do this huge work. I have the bad feeling that we are spreading efforts on the kind of project that can grow very big (our panel is like 55 000 lines of PHP plus all the other ssh scripts...), and I feel that it's a shame that you are just starting something without even getting in touch with us.

I hope that you'll succeed in what you are doing, and I wish you the best,

Re: Reinventing the wheel
additionally,
ehcp is apt-get powered. So, all server related programs installed thrugh apt-get. This means, they are always updated..

and, i am a linux system admin.
i got tired of testing other panels..
i decided to write my own.. with ideas in my mind as i mentioned above..

Re: Reinventing the wheel
first, ehcp is the first and only : opensource,full php, object oriented, gpl, free hosting control panel on the earth !

none of other projects meets these..
some of them are mixed code, not php,
some are propriaty, or hidden code,
some are very complex to contribute..


second,
i use the same Application class as i use in my all websites/programs.. So, it is easy to code/improve ehcp...

third,
the basic idea behind ehcp is, being easy, functional.. as i see, none of gpl/opensource projects are fully easy or functional..
some (such as ISPConfig) have many functions but very complex and non functioning...

please have a look at www.ehcp.net for more..

thank you anyway...
