Ubuntu install Webmin

April 5, 2013 by The Man

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 sarge contrib
deb 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
