What is Webmin?

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 installation

1. Install Webmin on FreeBSD (pkg)

You can install webmin on FreeBSD with pkg system.

pkg update
pkg install webmin
/usr/local/lib/webmin/setup.sh
echo "webmin_enable="YES"" >> /etc/rc.conf
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/webmin start

2. Install Webmin on Debian/Ubuntu/Mint (apt-get)

By adding the webmin repository and Jamie Cameron's key it is possible to install & maintain the latest Webmin/Usermin versions.

Just Cut&Paste the entire text below and hit enter. This will install the latest Webmin version by adding the webmin-repo and corresponding key as well as installing necessary packages:

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://download.webmin.com/download/repository sarge contrib" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/webmin.list'
wget -qO - http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install webmin

 

3. Webmin installation on CentOS/RedHat/Fedora (yum)

The following will install the latest Webmin version by adding the webmin-repo and corresponding GPG key. Yum will resolve all the necessary dependancies.

 

Just Cut&Paste the entire text below and hit enter/return:

(echo "[Webmin]
name=Webmin Distribution Neutral
baseurl=http://download.webmin.com/download/yum
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
