Customer management for Virtualmin ?


I have managed till noww all my hosting customers account in a spreadsheet file (name, date of expiration,...) but it's really boring, not efficient and very good for easy errors :( I have searched in Webmin plugins but found nothing. Does it exist a plugin in Webmin/Virtualmin that would be able to do such things in a basic way ? or a simple open-source software you would advise for that ? I have few dozens of customers not millions so I don't need SAP :D

Thanks for ideas, advices and enjoy end of year

In my opinion there is no better tool for this than what you are using: spreadsheets. I find it amusing that people use spreadsheets for 'databases', when spreadsheets are truly financial process AND charting tools. Also adding that this sort of data is pretty sensitive so you want to store it separate from all else. What happens when you mess up access rights or lose access to your VPS? Data stolen is not missing - it was copied and you never know it happened.

héhé yep spreadsheets are in fact pretty useful for that unless it's not very intuitive and very basic ;)

Don't worry for security, it's safely stored and safely backup'ed too as all storage systems die or suffer at a moment or an other so always fully redundant backup !
