How to Install Webmin in Linux
Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix. Using any modern web browser, you can setup user accounts, Apache, DNS, file sharing and much more. Webmin removes the need to manually edit Unix configuration files like /etc/passwd, and lets you manage a system from the console or remotely. See the standard modules page for a list of all the functions built into Webmin.
Installing the Webmin RPM
If you are using the RPM version of Webmin, first download the file from the downloads page , or run the command :
wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/webmin-1.930-1.noarch.rpm then install optional dependencies with :
and then run the command :
yum -y install perl perl-Net-SSLeay openssl perl-IO-Tty perl-Encode-Detect
rpm -U webmin-1.930-1.noarch.rpm The rest of the install will be done automatically to the directory /usr/libexec/webmin, the administration username set to root and the password to your current root password. You should now be able to login to Webmin at the URL http://localhost:10000/. Or if accessing it remotely, replace localhost with your system’s IP address.
If you want to connect from a remote server and your system has a firewall installed, see this page for instructions on how to open up port 10000.
Using the Webmin YUM repository
If you like to install and update Webmin via RPM, create the /etc/yum.repos.d/webmin.repo file containing :
name=Webmin Distribution Neutral You should also fetch and install my GPG key with which the packages are signed, with the commands :
wget http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc You will now be able to install with the command :
rpm --import jcameron-key.asc
yum install webmin All dependencies should be resolved automatically.
