    Which Server Administration GUI Do You Prefer?

    There seem to be no shortage of GUI's for server administration.

    Which ones do you use and how do you like/hate them?

    I like ssh. GUI's have serious limitations. cPanel is my second choice because it does seem to streamline repetitive tasks, but sometimes it just doesn't quite measure up to a sed statement.

    I always use the shell. The least painful web-gui I have used is cPanel which in recent revs seems to have ironed out many of the kinks.

    I have phpadmin on my godaddy sites. I guess that's my server admin!

    Web based GUIs/panels have serious limitations on any *nix system. I like phpmyadmin as well for working with mySQL databases.

    With windows I prefer using the system GUI (mmc, iis administrator etc) as opposed to command line.

    I used ssh also, but it was painful to say the least.. takes me hours to figure out how to do simple things that a coder would do in a few minutes. I get frustrated quickly from it so I prefer not to mess with my server stuff on my own.
    Also used directadmin on a few occasions.. it was in German, which I don't understand, but with the help of common sense and google translator I figured it out lol

    I'm more of a Plesk guy and have been for about two years now. It's simple enough for my customers and for me as well.
