Hi! I’m currently serving my customers through a Reseller account, shared cPanel hosting. And I’m running a small VPS on the side for some projects/labs etc.
Considering getting a larger VPS f.ex. from @Francisco with included Direct Admin and moving the cPanel accounts to this.
I have maintained many Linux servers over the years, but none with cPanel or Direct Admin etc. (It’s been my/our own servers, with narrow/limited purposes, maybe managed through Puppet etc.)
So, how much more work is maintaining/updating a server running DA, compared to my regular apt update/upgrade etc.? (I’ve been running unattented upgrades successfully for some years.) I assume it has a set of required packages/services and some config that will be overwritten/updated with panel updates.
Or, should I just keep my reseller plan and let the provider do the updating/maintenance? Life if full of these hard questions …
