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.


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


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


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


Start webmin using systemd:

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


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


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.
