Second problem is that every server is little bit different in network configuration, thos einfo also must be stored...
I meant something like Proxmox VE - a distribution based on Debian, which has a KVM and OpenVZ (virtualization) built in.
You put it in, type Enter, it installs, and you have a working server which lets you start virtual guests.
Or, Asterisk@Home - you put a CD, it installs, you have a distribution with Asterisk and a nice GUI already configured, ready to work.
Something similar for ISPConfig would be great - without the hassle of going through the whole installation.
