VHFFS – Virtual Hosting For Free Software:

October 3, 2011 / General Discussion

VHFFS is a set of tools to manage a web hosting platform initiated by pooled TuxFamily I think, but I am no longer using this interface, however, when I was using this platform for shared hosting on several shared servers, the performance shown by this interface was pretty impressive.

Here is a list of its features:

  • Web hosting (PHP4 and PHP5) with detailed statistics and logs available
  • Hosting MySQL and PostgreSQL databases
  • Subversion repositories
  • CVS repositories
  • Git repositories
  • Email address with pop / imap / webmail
  • Domain management (DNS management)
  • Accounts and redirects mail for the domain (with pop / imap / webmail)
  • Mailing Lists (domain-specific or not)
  • Download the area with detailed statistics,
  • Quota management for projects,
  • Jabber

VHFFS is freely distributed on the FTP server. In addition, VHFFS designed to work with the free operating system Debian GNU / Linux. VHFFS was developed to run on that platform. According to my knowledge, VHFFS does not work on another platform, but if anyone wishes to bring VHFFS to another architecture, it is free to do so. As it is an “open source” by design, anyone who wishes to help to improve this software can participate in its development.
