As I said on that page I’ll make a complete HowTo.
Doing this forum I got some ideas about some features for nethserver.
I know Nethserver is a modular system but I think it shoud be improved (I don’t know if it’s possible - you are the developers and you know better)
One thing that was pretty hard to do was configuring the reverse proxy. It had to be done manually (@mrmarkuz helped me alot with that). So a very good idea would be that all these settings would be made in nethserver control panel.
Considering that fact that there are webapps that don’t use php but nodejs or others I would implement these as modules with all the dependecies in a container(maybe docker is the solution for that?). So if you need a website that uses apache and php, just install this as a module. You need something made in nodejs - just install that app as a module.
I would use nginx as a replacement for apache in nethserver core. I read a lot these days about apache and nginx and it looks like it’s a better solution (easier to better to use it as a reverse proxy or proxy server).
I think NethserverUI is written in php (am I right?). It would have been better if it would have been made as an app (written in c, c++, c#, python - you name it) so it won’t have any dependencies like php, apache or any like that. This way Nethserver would be complete modular.
All these above are just some ideas of someone who is not a programmer or anything like that. I work as a food safety inspector in a public institution but since we don’t have an IT guy hired here, because we don’t have money for that, and because i like everyting about technology I became some sort of IT guy - fix computers, hardware and software, maintain the network, the phones etc etc etc.
But I must mention that Nethserver (as it is right now) IS a GREAT piece of software. Before Nethserver I used ClearOs ever since it was named ClarkConnect. Great software but I gave up on it when I saw it became free only for basic apps. I googled for something similar and I found some other options like pfsense, untangle and nethserver. I choosed Nethserver because being modular you can do more things with it that with the other distros I mentioned.
So keep up this good work you are doing and, if you can, improve nethserver so that it can be used even by the people who have little knowledges about servers but must maintain a network (trust me when i say that this category of people is the largest one).
