How to install webmin on Linux

Published by at 10:53 pm under linux,Ubuntu

WEbmin is an excellent tool to do Unix/Linux System Adminstratio/Configuration. The configuration interface is just a plain internet browser. Moreover it is free as well.
Visit Webmin to download the webmin package for your linux/unix distribution.

Here, i have used Ubuntu/Debian Distribution.
First, install the webmin package. If the webmin install package is in .deb format, then issue the below command

sudo dpkg –install webmin_1.390.deb

If the required perl modules are already installed, then you will not see any dependency errors. If you do see, then you need to install all the dependency.
i am installing the whole perl and other perl modules required by webmin.

sudo apt-get install perl libnet-ssleay-perl openssl libauthen-pam-perl libpam-runtime libio-pty-perl libmd5-perl

Now run
sudo dpkg –install webmin_1.390.deb

You should be all set now.
