How to install webmin on ubuntu 12.04 (Precise) server
We have already discussed how to install ubuntu 12.04 LAMP server now we will install webmin for easy ubuntu server administartion
Preparing your system
Open the terminal and run the following command
sudo apt-get install perl libnet-ssleay-perl openssl libauthen-pam-perl libpam-runtime libio-pty-perl apt-show-versions python
Now you need to dpwnload webmin deb package using the following command
Install downloaded package using the following command
sudo dpkg -i webmin_1.580_all.deb
This will install webmin now you need to access https://ubuntu-serverip:10000
Ubuntu in particular don't allow logins by the root user by default. However, the user created at system installation time can use sudo to switch to root. Webmin will allow any user who has this sudo capability to login with full root privileges.
Once you logged in you should see similar to the following screen
You can also install via Webmin’s APT Repository.
“All dependencies should be resolved automatically.”
I didnt test this but shouldnt the dpkg command require only one -i ?
sudo dpkg –i webmin_1.580_all.deb
Yes, –i did not work for me.
El comando es:
This is the correct command:
dpkg -i webmin_1.580_all.deb
i believe its a type.. using –i wont work.. use -i instead
Thanks for the instructions. The current Webmin package is now webmin_1.590_all.deb, just fyi.
Webmin 1.590 is here with Ubuntu 12.04 support.
i’ve used webmin_1.600_all.deb instead of webmin_1.590_all.deb
Thanks for the instructs. I’ve got it setup just fine but i ran into problems installing squid from the webmin apt’s repository. When i run the squid configuration and point it to the only ‘cachemgr.cg’ on the server, it’s the wrong one. the webmin ‘cachemgr.cgi’ won’t allow squid3 to initialise properly. I’ve searched the webmin fora and squid fora but nothing about the ‘cachemgr.cgi’. I’d love to have the proper squid3 cachemgr.cgi. If not, then how can I force an install of squid 2.7 instead?
Thnks, good instructions. Using Ubuntu 12.04 bitnami stack. Update: Webmin 1.610 – http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/webmin_1.610_all.deb
Thank you for the instructions !! very concise & precise.
You can always use this link for the latest version
It is now 1.630 as of 23.05.2013
Excellent instructions. To the point and it all worked at the first try. I totally fell in love with the webmin tool. All you need to monitor your home network and very easy to reach from anywhere.
After I installed “sudo dpkg -i webmin_1.580_all.deb”…it took me back to the prompt and didn’t display the Webmin…what am I missing. This is my first time playing around with Ubuntu Server.
excellent – thanks¬
how to i login into webmin ie- i want username username and password
The https address that it displayed does not work in the browser. Can I get some help please?
Maybe you can add few lines to explain that you have to allow 10000 through the firewall (if present).
I think it can be Nilanga’s issue.
Thank you very much for this useful how to!
Hi, well… I can log in to webmin but not by the server name but by its IP Address… How can I log in to Webin using the Server name?
Appreciate it very much…. 🙂
