Installing Webmin on Ubuntu 16.04+

Last Updated on

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/apt/sources.list

1
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

with the following contents:

1
deb http://download.webmin.com/download/repository sarge contrib

Next install the GPG key for webmin:

1
2
wget http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc
sudo apt-key add jcameron-key.asc

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

1
2
sudo apt update
sudo apt install webmin

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