Configure Webmin

NOTE: The steps below are only valid for Linux hosts.

To configure Webmin to manage the Bitnami servers:

  • Create the configuration file /etc/webmin/mysql/config for MySQL and fill it with the content below:

      start_cmd=sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh start mysql >/dev/null 2>&1
      stop_cmd=sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh stop mysql >/dev/null 2>&1
      mysql=/opt/bitnami/mysql/bin/mysql
      mysqladmin=/opt/bitnami/mysql/bin/mysqladmin
      mysqldump=/opt/bitnami/mysql/bin/mysqldump
      mysqlimport=/opt/bitnami/mysql/bin/mysqlimport
      my_cnf=/opt/bitnami/mysql/my.cnf
      mysqlshow=/opt/bitnami/mysql/bin/mysqlshow
      mysql_libs=/opt/bitnami/mysql/lib
      mysql_data=/opt/bitnami/mysql/data
      access=*: *
      style=0
      date_subs=0
      max_text=1000
      perpage=25
      nodbi=0
      max_dbs=50
      nopwd=0
      add_mode=1
      passwd_mode=0
      blob_mode=0
    
  • Similarly, create the configuration file /etc/webmin/apache/config for Apache and fill it with the content below:

      start_cmd=sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh start apache >/dev/null 2>&1
      stop_cmd=sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh stop apache >/dev/null 2>&1
      httpd_dir=/opt/bitnami/apache2
      httpd_conf=/opt/bitnami/apache2/conf/httpd.conf
      apachectl_path=/opt/bitnami/apache2/bin/apachectl
      apply_cmd=/opt/bitnami/apache2/bin/apachectl graceful
      defines_file=/opt/bitnami/apache2/bin/envvars
      link_dir=/opt/bitnami/apache2/conf/sites-enabled
      mime_types=/opt/bitnami/apache2/conf/mime.types
      access_conf=/opt/bitnami/apache2/conf/access.conf
      virt_file=/opt/bitnami/apache2/conf/sites-available
      srm_conf=/opt/bitnami/apache2/conf/srm.conf
      httpd_path=/opt/bitnami/apache2/bin/httpd
      test_manual=0
      show_list=0
      auto_mods=1
       test_apachectl=1
      max_servers=100
      show_order=0
      test_always=0
      show_names=0
      test_config=1
    
  • Similarly, create the configuration file /etc/webmin/postgresql/config for PostgreSQL (if you have it installed) and fill it with the content below:

      start_cmd=sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh start postgresql >/dev/null 2>&1
      stop_cmd=sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh stop postgresql >/dev/null 2>&1
      psql=/opt/bitnami/postgresql/bin/psql
      dump_cmd=/opt/bitnami/postgresql/bin/pg_dump
      rstr_cmd=/opt/bitnami/postgresql/bin/pg_restore
      pid_file=/opt/bitnami/postgresql/data/postmaster.pid
      hba_conf=/opt/bitnami/postgresql/data/pg_hba.conf
      simple_sched=0
      sameunix=1
      date_subs=0
      max_text=1000
      perpage=25
      plib=
      nodbi=1
      max_dbs=50
      pass=
      access=*: *
      webmin_subs=0
      style=0
      access_own=0
      basedb=template1
      login=postgres
      add_mode=1
      blob_mode=0
    
  • Browse to the Webmin application, log in and click the “Refresh Modules” button. You should now see the “Apache Webserver”, “PostgreSQL Database Server” and “MySQL Database Server” listed in the “Servers” tab.
