Please do not assume that I am suggesting you change your server and waste
your efforts . My aim is to define my approach with its reasons .

If I were you I would prefer to use KDE . I am very satisfied with my use
of KDE  . When I use FreeBSD together with LInux I am using KDE also in
FreeBSD . My difficulty in FreeBSD due to KDE is the following : KDE is
completing missing parts of Linux . In FreeBSD we can say that there are no
such missing parts ( it is a complete operating system ) . Management of
additional parts in KDE is causing mismatches with FreeBSD . There I do not
see any problem . KDE is supplying to me a consistent environment between
different operating systems . Important feature of KDE is its
restartability of the previous session when the computer is shutdown . To
my knowledge , the other desktops are not supplying such a feature .
This view may be wrong because I did not try the other desktops other than
Gnome .

Up to now I did not encounter a "desktop" which is not "graphical" . The
shell in Unix ( variants such as FreeBSD , Linux or others ) are using

You may search the following phrases in Google one by one :

non graphical desktops
non graphical desktop
linux desktop environments
ubuntu desktop environments
ubuntu server desktop environments
ubuntu server web GUI
ubuntu server management web interface

I think you will find a suitable solution for your works

When you study the following pages and their associated subpages , it will
be evident that there is no any non-gui desktop but
"lightweight gui desktops" :
