How To Install Webmin on an Ubuntu Cloud Server
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.
Step One—Root Login
Once you know your IP address and root password, login as the main user, root.
Step Two—Add Webmin to APT repository
Edit the /etc/apt/sources.list file on your system and add the following lines.
Open the file with nano:
Press [Page Down] button on the keyboard to reach to the end of file. (or press Left ALt+/)
Then paste these two lines below:
deb http://download.webmin.com/download/repository sarge contrib deb http://webmin.mirror.somersettechsolutions.co.uk/repository sarge contrib
Save changes with CTRL+O and exit with CTRL+X.
Step Three—Install Webmin’s GPG key
You should also fetch and install Webmin’s GPG key in which the repository is signed and with the commands:
cd /root wget http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc apt-key add jcameron-key.asc
Step Four—Install Webmin
You will now be able to install with the commands:
apt-get update apt-get install webmin
Step Five—Login to Webmin
Open your browser and go to http://your_droplet_ip:10000/
You can now login as root with your root password, or as any user who can use sudo to run commands as root.
