Install Webmin

Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration. Using any modern web browser, it enables management of user accounts, Apache, DNS, file sharing and much more.

The steps below walk you through the process of installing and configuring Webmin on a Bitnami virtual machine or server:

  • Log in at the machine console.
  • Download the latest stable version of Webmin.
  • Install dependencies and uncompress the tarball:

    $ sudo apt-get install perl5 libnet-ssleay-perl
    $ tar -xzvf webmin-*
    $ cd webmin-*
    
  • Run the installer and follow the installation steps. During the installation, you will be prompted for user credentials.

    $ sudo sh setup.sh
    
  • Open the default Webmin port of 10000 in the server firewall, as described in the FAQ.

Once Webmin is installed, access it with the credentials set during the installation process by browsing to http://SERVER-IP:10000.
