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 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.

wget http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc
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
