UBOS features a power tool for setting up new website services. The distro requires a fair amount of command line experience to set up, but largely runs itself once installed.

The big issue with this product is new services cannot be added to UBOS once the first set of network services have been created. eg. If we have Wordpress installed we cannot install a chat client later. Everythign must be set up all in one big batch, making UBOS very inflexible compared to other server distros.
