I would consider looking at ISPConfig - not only does it have that setup
as its back end, but it gives you a rather nice management interface,
and lets you manage DNS, mail, webspace, etc.

I didn't need/want teh extra management of DNS, etc. so I simply used
this howto -

https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__workaround.org_ispmail_jessie&d=DwIF-g&c=pZJPUDQ3SB9JplYbifm4nt2lEVG5pWx2KikqINpWlZM&r=iUSCqQal-H20QF9or__3g2H9ORMheuOrwYuG_vCdc2g&m=Wx5HwnOxtnSq83W9aEG26RG4JQyiKZcicra66b5Py2M&s=nS4GIqtKVL_DUtnp3C5g5_olknTVq2nCDy5cnGkolS0&e=


And then modified it to bring in SSL/TLS, etc.  I'm using a re-done
version of it for the Linux Services course I teach over here at "the
other college" ....

Unfortunately, the instructions I've setup for all of this are based on
Debian (and now Ubuntu), not CentOS/Redhat.... if you like, I can try to
gather it all up as pure HTML docs instead of having it in our Canvas
system....
