Summary help replacing me
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 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

You can install webmin from the Official Repositories. Webmin requires perl-net-ssleay to enable access via https.

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 ...)

or using systemd

# systemctl enable webmin.service
# systemctl start webmin.service

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.

Errors

If you get a an error similar to Can't locate timelocal.pl in @INC (@INC contains: /opt/webmin /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/share/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib/perl5/core_perl /usr/share/perl5/core_perl . /opt/webmin/ ..) at /opt/webmin/useradmin/edit_user.cgi line 6., for example, when adding a new system user through Webmin, you need to install perl-perl4-corelibs.
