    What are must have Linux server tools?

    Hey everyone!

    I'm trying to compile a small must have list for Linux servers. This is for a Linux servers without a GUI.

    I was wondering what programs and tools do you recommend that are not by default provided with OS?

    NGINX & HHVM for web server, UFW, SimpleScreenRecorder, VLC, qbittorrent since their bittorrent transmission client sucks, ehm, I will add more to the list when something pops up in my head.

    He said Linux SERVER. Why would you put SimpleScreenRecorder, VLC and qbittorrent on a server?

    Didn't really see that he wrote SERVER, because there's not really any software needed that doesn't exist on it when its installed. But it all depends on what he is doing, but I'd recommend xrdp unity or xmce for 2D GUI.

    Once again, why would you install a GUI on a server that is more than likely intended for hosting something? A GUI will just take up resources that should be allocated to the application(s) you're hosting.

    Some of us uses a VPS as working place, because I don't bother to zip and download files, remove and replace them on different PCs. Pure logic.

    I'm looking for command-line programs only. It is for servers, not for a personal remote desktop.

    An example would be: htop, a more user-friendly version of top.

    It's just in general. It's not for a specific type of server. Just a normal server on the Internet. I'm wondering what monitor tools etc others recommend.

    Most important is a working Brain, since its no Sandbox. All other shit comes by the time. Even "must have" tools.

    Fail2Ban, IPTables and Webmin. For those of you that don't know what Webmin is, it's basically an administration panel for the entire server and modules / packages installed. Similar to Plesk (just not shit).

    Webmin is just for idiots who are to dumb for the console. Installing a huge, wide open security risk for mouse adventures, rly?
