A Control Panel for Nginx?

Hi, There is no module for it.

Something I should have mentioned "my bad" I have webmin + nginx on a test
server. My main server is running Plesk and Nginx. I'm in the process of
moving everything over to the test server though but have yet to put a
single domain on it. Its just accessible via ip.

But webmin + nginx works fine like that. To extend it to use domains just
install the BINDDNSServer <http://doxfer.com/Webmin/BINDDNSServer>.  I have
yet to use that via webmin but the setup looks pretty straight forward.

I actually just did a fresh fedora 9 install then installed the webmin rpm
from their site. Then on the left hand menu choose Unused Modules and
install the necessary items, php, mysql, binddns server ect. Then I
installed nginx, tossed a cfg in, started up the php-fcgi's nginx and mysql
and blam it was working based off ip. So adding a domain and custom dns's
should be pretty simple. I do have apache installed but it does not
autostart or need to run for webmin. And I've never used it with ubuntu,
only centos5 and fedora 8,9 and 10. It actually has a slick built in yum
updater/installer via the webmin panel. May work with apt-get too but I'm

After re-reading your 1st email I think you were looking for somthing with a
gui to write data to the nginx cfg. Webmin does not do that. I just paste in
a new block per domain, then customize it per its requirements and root ect.

Someone at the direct admin forums got direct admin working in the manor I
think your looking for.
It looks like its a cfg parsor. Thus servers added via the Direct admin
panel would be added to the httpd.conf then parsed by his custom setup and
automaticly added to the nginx.conf. It looks pretty slick and depending on
your host many give direct admin as a free addon.

Anyway good luck.
