    I am currently using cpanel/whm and my server needs to be replaced so I am about to build a new server. Since there are so many things that can be installed I was hoping someone here could tell me what I NEED to install.

    Software:
    Running centos 5.2-aside from what cpanel installs for me what modules would be best in a web hosting environment (apache modules). I will be doing a lot of php websites with most of them having whmcs and Open Realty installed. At this time I will be administering all of the sites-no other users. I may in the future sell space to individual users.

    My current Apache build:

    Does any of the above need to be included and does any of the installed ones need to be discarded?
