Hi and welcome to LQ.org. Try Webmin, I like it a lot, though I don't use it anymore:

http://www.webmin.com/

http://www.webmin.com/ should give you all the answers you need. It looks as though they haven't certified it for Ubuntu, but that just means that they haven't tested it.

http://www.webmin.com/standard.html says that it has users/group admin as a module. So after you have installed it, go to the link in this paragraph and get any modules that are missing that you need.

You can get Usermin from the same place if you need it.

i know another free CP!

it's called "vi(m)"

Anyway, know what your doing lad. Webhosting is a delicate business (people are relying on it). And as i read it, you don't know what your doing very well. (if you did, you didn't need a cp for administrating the maching in the first place). just a warning.

dunno - you'd probably get best responses on this from a Windows message board or forum.

Webmin lets you control things. Usermin lets your users control things.

The apt-get repositories. Launch Synaptic and do a search for Webmin - it should be available in there for installation.
