10 favorite web based administration tools

Webmin

Often thought of as one of the most powerful administration tools available, Webmin has long been one of the standards by which all other web-based tools are compared. Webmin allows you to add/remove numerous modules that can administer just about every possible service you can imagine. From this tool you can even control what services are started on the machine and even manage clustering (if available). There are some that claim Webmin is a security vulnerability. But on a well-configured, secure server, any vulnerability that might be introduced would be nullified.
