Ubuntu Server – Installing Webmin

Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration. Webmin has a vast range of functionality, my interest at this point is to create virtual hosts for Apache.

First we need to download Webmin from here – at the time of writing the current version is 1.540.

Copy the webmin*.deb file to your server and then make sure that the dependencies are installed:

sudo apt-get install perl libnet-ssleay-perl openssl
libauthen-pam-perl libpam-runtime libio-pty-perl

Install Webmin as follows:

sudo dpkg --install webmin_1.540_all.deb

We can now log in to Webmin: https://<server-ip&gt;:10000/

Log in with the account that you set up when you installed Ubuntu Server.

Links to the Webmin Wiki and documentation for individual modules can be found here.
