Installing Webmin on Centos 7

Webmin is an extremely useful tool for configuring your Linux machine from a web based interface.  It makes management easier in some respects, such as the initial configuration of a server.

First, let’s create the local repository at this location /etc/yum.repos.d/webmin.repo

1
vi /etc/yum.repos.d/webmin.repo

with the following contents:

1
2
3
4
5
[Webmin]
name=Webmin Distribution Neutral
#baseurl=https://download.webmin.com/download/yum
mirrorlist=https://download.webmin.com/download/yum/mirrorlist
enabled=1

Next install the GPG key for webmin:

1
2
wget http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc
rpm --import jcameron-key.asc

Now, we are prepared to install webmin with the YUM installer.

1
yum install -y webmin

If you are running firewalld, you will need to open port 10000 or the port your Webmin daemon is configured to run on.
