I like to use apt-get so here is how I usually install Webmin on Ubuntu. If you have never seen Webmin before it’s a great little tool to web manage your Ubuntu boxes. See it here.
1. Add the Webmin repository to your system by opening
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
then adding these two lines and saving
deb http://download.webmin.com/download/repository sarge contrib
deb http://webmin.mirror.somersettechsolutions.co.uk/repository sarge contrib
2. Next we add the key so we can be sure we are getting the right files.
sudo apt-key add jcameron-key.asc
3. Now just a quick update then install
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install webmin
and hopefully this should take care of all the dependancies as well. Then simply log into your new console at https://boxname:10000
