The Complete Illustrated Step by Step Guide to Creating an Ubuntu LAMP Server Part 2

Part 2 – Webmin Installation.

Next step is we are going to configure management tools. I personally like webmin to manage my servers. It’s easy, effective, and secure.

  1. Login to your Ubuntu system.
  2. We’re going to have to prepare a bit before we can actually start downloading Webmin. First type in “sudo apt-get update”. This will prompt you for your password again enter and continue on.
  3. After it updates run “sudo apt-get install apt-show-versions perl libnet-ssleay-perl openssl libauthen-pam-perl libpam-runtime libio-pty-perl libapt-pkg-perl” to download the dependencies.
  4. Grab the file online using “wget” or check out their website.
  5. Install the package using the command “sudo dpkg –I webmin_1.510-2_all.deb”
  6. Now that it is all setup, it’s time to check it out. From another computer on the same network go to https://[IPaddress or hostname]:10000. You’ll get an error like this to which you just need to click continue to this website (IE) or I understand the risks -> Add Exception… (Firefox)
  7. Login and you are done installing Webmin.
