How to Install Vesta Control Panel on Ubuntu 14.04
This tutorial will show you how to install Vesta Control Panel on Ubuntu 14.04. Vesta Control Panel is a free open source control panel that is an excellent alternative to cPanel.

Vesta installs Nginx on the front-end and Apache on the back-end, which essentially gives the best of both worlds.
