Cockpit 280

Cockpit is the modern Linux admin interface. We release regularly.

Here are the release notes from Cockpit 280:

Disallow root login by default

On all operating systems, logging in as root with a username/password via SSH has been disallowed for a long time. Cockpit now also disallows it by default on new installations, but still allows it on upgrades for backwards compatibility. You can configure this in /etc/cockpit/disallowed-users.

Try it out
