Installing Webmin

 

To install Webmin via apt-get you will have to add it to your repository:

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

Go to the end and add this to the file:

deb http://download.webmin.com/download/repository sarge contrib deb http://webmin.mirror.somersettechsolutions.co.uk/repository sarge contrib

 

Copy the above and press Ctrl+Shift+V to paste it in the editor, then Ctrl+X to save and exit the file and then hit enter when prompted for the confirmation. After performing the above actions, you need to get the GPG key the repository is signed with. So for that type in the following commands:

cd /root
wget http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc
apt-key add jcameron-key.asc

After adding the GPG key you need to update the source.list:

sudo apt-get update

Now you can install Webmin by typing:

sudo apt-get install webmin

 

Login to Webmin

Open up the browser and type in you IP address with as following:

https://your_ip:10000/

Set up the firewall using UFW

sudo ufw allow webmin
