Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix.
Using any modern web browser, you can setup user accounts, Apache,
DNS, file sharing, and much more. Webmin removes the need to manually
edit Unix configuration files like /etc/passwd and lets you manage
a system from the console or remotely.
Webmin consists of a simple web server and a number of CGI programs
which directly update system files like /etc/inetd.conf and /etc/passwd.
The web server and all CGI programs are written in Perl version 5, and use
only the standard perl modules.
Some modules will require manual configuration from within webmin.
Login with root and root's password.
If you need to start webmin at boot.
The recommended way is to add the following to your /etc/rc.d/rc.local
script and make sure rc.webmin has executable permissions set:
if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.webmin ]; then
After the webmin service is started, point your web browser to
http://localhost:10000 and login as root to use webmin.
