    I`am very disappointed of cpanel software. Regarding system requirements http://www.cpanel.net/products/cPanelandWHM/linux/sys_requirements.htm using FreeBSD, it is took me 1 day to collect the whole required perl modules. Now I can`t send emails, just recive, quota is somewhere in the space, nothing work like I expect. Thank you cpanel. Thanks about your compatible, thanks again. To pay "$1075.00 USD", no thanks, will try something else.

    Best regards, Pavel Simov

    You don't have to pay $1075. Generally people get it for a monthly fee of $20-$35 from a partner noc along with a dedicated server.

    Have a nice day.

    Im guessing it doesn't only mean advanced FreeBSD users but also advanced cPanel users.. Maybe you should try one of the other OS:es like CentOS.

    For those money everything should work on 99% by default. Nevermind. Spend a lot of time to tune, now it works. Result - there are so many "bugs" in cpanel for FreeBSD. Before sell software for a such OS (FreeBSD), first at all try to resolve the common problems.

    Can submit some patches if you want.
    Best regards.

    You should pay for cPanel because the staff work hard developing it. Programming skills cost, as does bandwidth etc etc.

    As already said, try a different OS. I have always seen endless problems with FreeBSD boxes. Cant fault RHE/Fedora/CentOS.

    FreeBSD is not a variant of Linux. It is a derivative of true BSD Unix. Just FYI.....

    I totally agree, if cPanel doesn't work for you, use something else. I don't see what the big deal is. I find products I don't use all of the time, but I don't go to their support boards and say, I'M NOT PAYING FOR THIS. I just buy the one I like...
