How to Install Webmin on Your VPS

Webmin is one of the best web-based interfaces for system administration for any Unix-like system. It’s completely free and open-source. With Webmin, you can configure services like Apache, PHP, DNS, file sharing, setup user accounts and much more, just by using your web browser. You don’t have to manually edit any Unix configuration files like /etc/password, you can use Webmin to do that. Webmin lets you manage a system from the console or remotely. Lots of servers use Webmin as it’s easy to use even for beginners. If you already know how to use another control panel like cPanel or Ajenti, getting used to Webmin will be much easier for you. You can quickly install a Webmin instance on your server and try it out before deciding whether or not you should use it.

In this tutorial we’ll show you how to install and access Webmin on CentOS/Fedora and Ubuntu/Debian.
 Install Webmin on CentOS/Fedora

You can download Webmin in several package formats from Webmin’s official website. We need the RPM package to install Webmin on CentOS/Fedora.

Step 1 – Before proceeding with Webmin’s installation, install the following dependencies:


yum -y install perl perl-Net-SSLeay openssl perl-IO-Tty


Step 2 – Find the latest stable Webmin release and install it using the following command:


rpm -Uvh

The installation is done automatically. The administration username is ‘root‘ and its password is your current ‘root‘ password.


You can also create a repository for installing Webmin. Doing it this way you will always have the latest automatic updates via repository.

Step 1 – Create a ‘/etc/yum.repos.d/webmin.repo‘ file:


nano /etc/yum.repos.d/webmin.repo

Put the following lines:







name=Webmin Distribution Neutral




Step 2 – Download and install the GPG key for the package:




rpm --import jcameron-key.asc


Step 3 – You can now install Webmin by executing:


yum install Webmin


If you want to change your Webmin password, use the following command:


/usr/libexec/webmin/ /etc/webmin root NEWPASSWORD

Where ‘NEWPASSWORD‘ will be your new Webmin password.


Install Webmin on Ubuntu/Debian

Step 1 – Download the latest Debian package from Webmin’s official website



Step 2 – install it with the following command:


dpkg --install webmin_1.791_all.deb

That’s all. The username is ‘root‘ and its password is your current root password.


To change the Webmin password run the following command:


/usr/share/webmin/ /etc/webmin root NEWPASSWORD

Where ‘NEWPASSWORD‘ will be your new Webmin password.

How To Access Webmin

Webmin by default is listening on port 10000 on all Linux distributions. Open a web browser and point it to https://YOURDOMAIN.TLD:10000 , enter ‘root‘ as username and your root password and you are ready to go.
