Webmin is a user-friendly web-based interface for Linux server system administration. Previously installing Webmin on your Ubuntu server required a few workarounds thanks to its reliance on deprecated perl libraries, but nowadays you can actually do a full install via the standard APT mechanism.
First, edit your sources file to add the Webmin repository:
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
Add the following two lines at the end of the file:
deb http://download.webmin.com/download/repository sarge contrib deb http://webmin.mirror.somersettechsolutions.co.uk/repository sarge contrib
Next, add the necessary key to ensure smooth access:
cd ~ wget http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc sudo apt-key add jcameron-key.asc
Now that we’re all set up, time to do the actual download and install:
sudo apt-get update apt-get install webmin apt-get -f install
Done. You should now be able to login to Webmin at the URL http://localhost:10000/. Or if accessing it remotely, replace localhost with your system’s IP address. You can login in with any user account that has sudo powers.
