Webmin: Linux administration kept simple

Webmin on Debian:
(latest version can be found here if a new version has come out http://www.webmin.com/download.html)

Run everything in root to avoid confusion

apt-get update

apt-get install wget perl libnet-ssleay-perl openssl libauthen-pam-perl libio-pty-perl libmd5-perl

wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/webmin_1.441_all.deb

dpkg -i webmin_1.441_all.deb

rm -rvf /etc/rc*d/S*webmin*

rm -rvf /etc/rc*d/K*webmin*

update-rc.d -f webmin defaults 99 01

login at https://yourhostname:10000

It will have a security problem just accept the certificate

Don’t forget to add port 10000 to your firewall exceptions (if your firewall is even on)

I reccomend firestarter (must run as root) for that.

Once in go to webmin -> webmin configuration -> ports and addresses and change from 10000 to something a bit more random (anything over 10K) then remove 10K from firewall and add your new port as an exception.
