 Linux Control Panel - Programming Language

Question

Scarlettsu    0

Hello,

I got a server from VPB, now I had planned to create my own control panel. 

I want to ask, which language you guys recommend for developing it.

PERL, PHP or PYTHON?

Also how can we run Linux Shell Commands via these programming languages. Can someone shed light on it?

Thank You!

I'd recommend PHP - it's the most widely supported language.  The vast majority of web applications are written in PHP, using a MySQL database.  Almost all hosting accounts support both technologies.

All these scripting languages allow you to run shell commands via a special function call.  e.g http://php.net/manual/en/function.shell-exec.php

Hey

You can try PHP and it will be easiest. You can use PHP 'shell-exec' function to run system calls.

You can also try Python which has its own web framework for developing web-applications. Python also has 'exec' function for running system calls.

 

Developing your own control panel it's a challenging project you know :)

But it will be at least a good project to learn PHP or Python
