Default Do I Need ispConfig?

I did the perfect server setp on 10.04 server. It's a home/small business server also with MthTV installed. We currently run a couple of web applications from our remote web server on Dreamhost that I am interested in running locally. I would be the only user as far as accessing the control panel and I don't see a need for using a domain name. Ideally I would like to have access to these web apps from the web, but only for a few employees. I am thinking of leaving our web site hosted with Dreamhost.

Is there some benefit to running things through ispConfig instead of just installing to my var folder & using phpmyadmin to configure my database stuff?

Possibly related, what is the best way to have access to our web apps from the internet with a regular cable internet access account (dynamic ip)? Security is obviously a concern if we're going to be accessing from outside and it's not clear to me if running things through ispConfig is any different than not in this respect. I do have a router of course.

If you just want to run one web site, then ISPConfig is possibly overkill.

I suggest you get a hostname from dyndns.org and use this hostname for the web site on the local server. You must configure your router to forward port 80 to your local server.

I wonder if what I really want is a vpn? Would like that anyway & could just access our web apps that way.
