Install Webmin in Ubuntu


Webmin is not preconfigured in Ubuntu apt-get repository and we don't want to go through the hassle of dpkg deb files or compiling the source code.So lets begin by editing repository sources
  1. Edit sources file /etc/apt/sources.list
    sudo vim /etc/apt/sources.list
    
  2. Add these lines to it and save the file
    deb http://download.webmin.com/download/repository sarge contrib
    deb http://webmin.mirror.somersettechsolutions.co.uk/repository sarge contrib
    
  3. Add the Webmin GPG key to make apt-get to trust repository
    wget -q http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -
    
  4. Update the sources
    sudo apt-get update
    
  5. Now simply install webmin
    sudo apt-get install webmin
    
  6. To access webmin, remember to port-forward 10000 port number. Moreover, webmin runs on HTTPS protocol. Hence, connect like the link below. change example.com to your domain name
