Webmin in Ubuntu 9.04

Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix. Using any browser that supports tables and forms (and Java for the File Manager module), you can setup user accounts, Apache, DNS, file sharing and so on.

Webmin consists of a simple web server, and a number of CGI programs which directly update system files like /etc/inetd.conf and /etc/passwd. The web server and all CGI programs are written in Perl version 5, and use no non-standard Perl modules.

Installing Webmin in Ubuntu

 #apt-get update

 Installing the required packages

# sudo apt-get install perl libnet-ssleay-perl openssl libauthen-pam-perl libpam-runtime libio-pty-perl libmd5-perl

Downloading the package

# wget

#apt-get -f install apt-show-versions

#dpkg -i webmin_1.530_all.deb
Restarting the application
#/etc/init.d/webmin restart

And it is done !!!!!!

You can access the webmin using the below URL
