GUI Server Front End?


OK Heres what I have:

Ubuntu Server
Apache 2
MySQL
PHP
Pure-FTPD

Just out of curiosity is there anything like an "Administration" GUI such as a PHP program or anything similar to run my server via HTTP? I can handle it all from CLI just fine through SSH, but I just hate to think a project is at a finishing point. I was just wondering if there was anything that existed for this purpose? As an example, not even close to the same use, but same basic idea: DD-WRT's GUI front end for the router management.

Thanks!

Since you have php running, why not use it to create the gui you want?

To be honest, I only have it there because it came configured with apache2 I believe. Never even tried to mess with it. Any good tutorials about you might recommend?

No but I have a suggestion, figure out a task you want to achieve and then go about learning the necessary php to get it done.

Say for starters you want some server statistics, net usage or whatever..now you know the task set out learning the php that can do this.

Then you build functionality as you desire it, this is what works for me....keeps things from being overwhelming.

If you don't want to build your own, try Webmin http://www.webmin.com/ & a HOWTO http://www.mysql-apache-php.com/.
Might give you some ptrs even if you do.
