    After 6 months of using ISPconfig , all features mentioned are not fully working.
    ... and some of them are very very problematics for webhosting provider :
    1. jailkit is not working well : that's a great issue for end users, some command works, another one don't .. weird, env & locales issue (ie. php).
      This is a big problem for enduser in order to manager their website ... with SSh access.
    2. nginx and php (ini) options are not available for end users : how can they be in autonomy for building their own website with this lack ????
    3. mailing list are too buggy , cannot discard etc ...
    For example if you want to allow Nextcloud update from CLI without being ROOT ... this is simply impossible
    Our end users are NOT root on web server.

    I don't have any issues on my systems. The jails are freely configurable, so you have to think about which applications you want to have in a jail and then activate these applications in the jail settings.

    You have to add directive snippets (see System module), which your users then are able to select on their own. Access to freely editable nginx and php options is not possible as your users would then be able to take over your server easily and kick you out as root user, that's probably not what you want ;) Nginx hosting is more complicated in general than apache hosting, that's not related to ispconfig, it is caused by the lack of support for a mechanism like .htaccess files in nginx. But that's on purpose as such a mechanism would slow down nginx. If you want to allow your customers to do easy customizations on their own, simply install apache instead of nginx. ISPConfig supports both web servers.

    Mailing lists are indeed outdated as they are not widely used anymore. We'll probably remove them completely from ISPConfig.
