VPS Server configuration: CentOS, control panel, nginx, php

I need someone to help me configure my server. I have a VPS through I am hiring on a one-time basis, but if you do your work well and quickly, I might hire you for more work later down the line.

Previously I was using WHM/Cpanel for my control panel. Now, I am only interested in using a free and open source control panel. My requirements for this control panel are that it does not have a large memory or CPU footprint. It is fast and agile, and also easy to use.

These are a few panels that I know of: GPL DTC, ISPConfig, Webmin/Virtualmin, OpenPanel.

If you have suggestions for any other panels then I am fine with that.

I want to have nginx web server installed instead of apache. I know that none of these control panels work directly with nginx, so you’re going to have to find some way to make it work.

I need someone to configure and optimize and install SSL certificates, mysql, nginx, mail server, ftp server, for the best performance and security possible on an open source platform. If you have any other suggestions then great!

I have uploaded the Cpanel backup file from my last server, and once the server is installed and configured this backup file will need to be restored. It has all the server data including databases, product files, website files, etc.

These following plugins need to be enabled, and must work with the control panel/nginx:

• php_curl

• php_gd2

• php_mbstring

• php_mcrypt

• php_zip

• php_suphp

My first requirement is to set these mail MX records up right away after installing the control panel so that email will work through Google Apps.

Priority Mail Server

Please tell me which control panel you will recommend, if you can set up the MX records right away after installing this control panel, if you can make nginx work with all these plugins and the control panel (and how), if you can install SSL certificate, optimize the website for the best performance, etc.
