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:

  • Log in at the machine console. Refer to the FAQ for more information.

  • Download the latest stable version of Webmin by executing the following:

      $ wget https://downloads.source-forge.net/project/webadmin/webmin/1.860/1.860-1.noarch.rpm
  • Install optional dependencies:

      $ sudo yum -y install perl perl-Net-SSLeay openssl perl-IO-Tty perl-Encode-Detect
  • Run the following command to finish the installation:

      $ sudo rpm -U webmin-1.860-1.noarch.rpm

    The rest of the install will be done automatically to the directory /usr/libexec/webmin.

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

Once Webmin is installed, access it with your virtual machine credentials by browsing to http://SERVER-IP:10000.
