Here is my Wishlist for the Fantastic HestiaCP,
although my wishes may not be the same as everyone else’s but I figure I would document it on the forums.
I understand most or all of these wishes may not be implemented and I don’t want to put any obligation on any of the developers to do so, just wishes
Hestia is an Open source project. Currently we provide this awesome software to everybody. In return for this awesome software we don’t ask anything from anybody. So instead of asking new features maybe consider developing it.
If you need a new feature you can always develop it and submit it via a Pull request.
A lot of our developers don’t use email hosted on Hestia servers.
File manager had a lot of limitations how ever unless we develop our own not a lot of improvements will come. Issue is only time / manpower…
Create a feature request it makes sense if DNS is enabled…
I think it is unwise to have so many suggestions all in the same forum post. It would have been much better to pick two or three things that matter most and then have a discussion on the pros and cons of them - and then do a separate post for two or three other topics.
I mainly want to thank the developers for this terrific panel. In my opinion, it is the best panel in the world and you do not have to do anything else. It is already terrific just the way it is.
However, in terms of getting rid of things, I support replacing spam assassin with RSPAM.
Although some may hate me for this, I also support getting rid of clam-av - mainly because in my opinion, it does very little and it uses one entire GB of RAM. Using that much RAM is in my opinion ridiculous. I am aware that I can just delete clam-av from the install and that is what I do. But I really see know reason for clam-av in the first place despite having studied clam-av for years.
I also think that the Hestia File Manager should keep public_html. Changing this folder to the name public would cause complete havoc.
I used to use Ubuntu (for the past 10 years). But a year ago, I switched to Debian and I think it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Debian is much better and much easier to use now than it was 10 years ago. I would at least encourage people to try Debian and I want to thank the developers for supporting Debian.
Every time I see a topic/feature request like this I think, users forget that this is not CPanel and it free software.
For 100 accounts they charge almost 50 dollar a month. If they have 100 000 client it will mean the can spend about 5 000 000 dollar / month on support / development and have a profit. We don’t have the possibilities so forget it…
There are currently around 11k servers on the “internet” running HestiaCP. So developing a feature request for a function to help 1 user save xx minutes of time doesn’t add up.
Was added by me because there was a need for it. (Before I was part of Hestia) And this is often the best way to add a feature.
If I have to spend 1 / 2 days on a new feature it needs tick of at least of 2 / 3 for:
It speed up some thing / Improve a lot of stability
I use it …
A lot of users want it… (Ipv6 for example)
It makes things easier
Was added within 2 days because:
I would love faster backups
Smaller / faster Backups and it may save disk space
Our base development team is currently very small. One of the active developers had enough of it and “left”.
If you check Github you will see that 90% of commits are done by me and even I have not enough time to do some basic bug fixes
I am currently working about 25 to 30 hour a week on this project and the current income of Hestia is nothing more than 100 euro in a month. And for ipv6 a lot of more hours need to be invested into it…
If you don’t like it you have 4 options:
Submit changes via a pull request
Fork Hestia and develop your own panel. Build your own packages and so on.
Stick with it and accept that no changes are made.
Or use a other panel. There are 1000 other options that suite your needs. Paid and maybe free ones
