Webmin runs as a service. Using webmin, you can administer other services and server configuration using a web browser, either from the server or remotely.

Installation

Webmin requires perl-net-ssleay to enable access via https.

To install the latest versions of Webmin, and perl-net-ssleay, run

# pacman -S webmin perl-net-ssleay

Configuration

To allow access to Webmin from a remote computer, edit /etc/webmin/miniserv.conf to include your network address. (Note - 127.0.0.1 is there by default)

allow=127.0.0.1 192.168.1.0

The above example allows all computers on the 192.168.1.0 network to access Webmin.

Starting

Start webmin

# rc.d start webmin

Include webmin in the DAEMONS=() section of /etc/rc.conf to start it on boot.

DAEMONS=(.. vsftpd webmin ...)

Using

In a web browser, enter the https address of the server with the port number 10000 to access Webmin - for example:

https://192.168.1.1:10000 -or- https://myserver.example.net:10000

You will need to enter the root password of the server running Webmin to use the Webmin interface and administer the server.
