A new “Basic Input Output System” (AKA Control Panel) for your CentOS Web Server

April 16, 2015 by · Comments Off on A new “Basic Input Output System” (AKA Control Panel) for your CentOS Web Server 

Today we’ve had the pleasure of interviewing a developer for the Site Bios control panel.  SiteBios is a free, open source control panel for Linux, specifically CentOS. It contains your essential LAMP stack, where M denotes for MariaDB and P includes both PHP and a full features Post Fix mail service.

In additional to the LAMP stick it also features some other server related services, such as Bind for the purpose of running a name server.

Structure wise it reflects quite a few similarities to the regular control panels, presenting a three tier panel. It has an admin interface, a client/user interface and also a reseller admin interface.

The best part we’ve noticed is a design which enables this control panel not to run as root. In fact it uses a kernel type script to take care of several requests which require a root access for running.  Furthermore, the “Kernel” also provides an extra layer of security, in addition to doing what it normally does. For example, it validates the data before it is passed to the shell script which runs as root.
