Install Webmin to Debian server

Webmin is a web interface for configuring your linux box. Using any modern web browser, you can setup user accounts, Apache, DNS, file sharing and much more, and all can be done remotely.

Install required libraries:

apt-get install perl libnet-ssleay-perl openssl libauthen-pam-perl libpam-runtime libio-pty-perl apt-show-versions python python-minimal libapt-pkg-perl perl-base perl-modules

Now we can download the latest webmin archive (this might change in time). We choose debian package .deb

wget http://www.webmin.com/download/deb/webmin-current.deb

Install webmin by typing:

dpkg -i webmin-current.deb

Stop the server if webmin started:


Edit the users file:

nano /etc/webmin/miniserv.users

and add:


replace username with your username that can run commands as root (mine was actually root).

Start server:


Now you can access webmin by putting this adress into your browser:


After login if you see only system information in webmin, you need to reinstall webmin:

dpkg --remove webmin
rm -r /usr/share/webmin/
dpkg --install webmin-current.deb
