Sentora Feedback and Ideas

Sentora Feedback and Ideas
Hello,

This thread will be referencing all of points that we as a community can improve in to make Sentora better, and for constructive criticism purposes only.

Web Server:

I don't think I need to explain this, OpenLiteSpeed does everything Apache can, but better.

Apache like Rewrite Support
Anti-Dos Technology (with right configuration)
Light Footprint
Built-in Page Caching
Multiple PHP Versions
Ruby, Python & LUA Support
One Click (App - Wordpress, Joomla etc.) Installer
Webadmin Panel
Page Speed Mod
Reverse Proxy

and much more...

http://open.litespeedtech.com/mediawiki/

Addtionally make Varnish (or Nginx) on top of OpenLiteSpeed available to increase the performance even further (this should be optional as not everyone has enough resources for Varnish)  

POTENTIALLY - this setup will enable web hosts to serve 'Proxying' services should they wish to.

Regarding Suhosin: Because of OpenLiteSpeeds 'name based' hosting you can set Sentora to use PHP 5.X with Suhosin and let the clients choose their own version of PHP for their sites.

Should we be lucky: https://github.com/sektioneins/suhosin7 (should release after PHP7 matures).

Databases:


These can be optional (available on install or can be installed later) - These are rather easy to be installed and should be a breeze to include in the next version.

PostgreSQL Support (PHPPgAdmin)

MongoDB Support (PHPMoAdmin)

These database engines increase the number of applications that can be supported on the platform, moreover people are changing to NoSQL rapidly and this would be perfect.

Read this as to why MongoDB would be great:

File Manager

This is really a pain having to install an extension that is buggy and not natively coded for Sentora, I heard that there is a premium upgrade, but I believe that there should be a free version available with the basic features pre-installed.

Website Builder
One-Click Installer (Yeah I know about Sentastico, but it would be great to increase the choices and the ability for hosts to add their own like Softaculous)
Categories of Applications (like Softaculous - https://gyazo.com/7815a421db80799237362aeda44dbb64.png)
Anti-Spam (SpamAssasin Module)
Anti-Virus (ClamAV Module)
WHMCS Support (Current Addons are either paid or for OUTDATED WHMCS Software) + Other Billing Softwares
Jailed SSH Access (Optional - Choice of the zadmin/root user for certain packages).

I think this will enhance Sentora's popularity and will help become a major competitor to cPanel, Plesk and DirectAdmin (if it already isn't)

I hope Sentora to become like this: https://i.gyazo.com/f272ab3c80ee4136ebc7...aface6.jpg (Fully Featured, Marketable and Functional).

Thanks!

RE: Sentora Feedback and Ideas
cPanel Migration - Ability for users & resellers to transfer their websites and settings to Sentora (I know its not going to be 100% bug free, but as long as the Databases, DNS Settings, Emails and Files are there it should be fine).

Just an idea on top of my head to grab Sentora a larger market share.

Multi Tier Reseller System:

The ability for resellers to create sub-resellers and those to create their own resellers (so the cycle goes on), giving the ability to replicate the once powerful 'Zamfoo Module' for cPanel/WHM.
