    Today i have a vps with DirectAdmin.
    It works really good. But i want to get a opensource panel.

    I will setup a new vps and i have options Xen or OpenVZ
    Xen cost more, but thats only $5/month.

    I have read that IspConfig cant really work well in OpenVZ.
    Is that true or will it run just fine?

    I have read that pureftp cant run on OpenVZ, and some people use proftpd, but if i use that i will need to hack files and cant update ispconfig later.

    Whats best for me?
    I will use Debian 6.0 32-bit.

    Please link to a guide thats work well on vps server.

    EDIT: One more thing. Which mailserver will be best? Dovecot or courier..
    Big thanks!!

    Ispconfig Works perfectly on openvz. I use that on all my Servers.

    Pureftpdworks fine on openvz, See ispconfig FAQ for detailed Installation instructions if your Hosting Provider has disabled some capabilities.

    I recommend that you use openvz As its netter suited for Hosting Servers.

    All guides that you find on work for Virtual Servers.

    If you use dovecot or courier is a Personal preference, both work fine.

    I can confirm that ISPConfig is working on OpenVZ, including pureFTP.

    But I move now to dedicated server...
