Howto Install Webmin [Ubuntu Dapper Drake 6.06]

Posted on Updated on

Hanya mendokumentasikan Tutorial yang saya dapet dari searching google, siapa tau besuk kepake…. 🙂

Referensi :

Webmin is an excellent web-based interface to your Unix based machines. There are no webmin packages in the latest release "Dapper". This is how I installed webmin on my Dapper server… Install SSH

#sudo apt-get install ssh

2. Enable the universe and multiverse repositories in the /etc/apt/sources.list (

3. To make this easier use a ssh client like Putty (Win32) or a Term on another machine that has a GUI and copy / paste these commands or you can just re-type them…

Below is the source I just happened to use. If it is not working go to: and find a working mirror.


#gzip -cd webmin-1.270.tar.gz | tar xvf –

#sudo apt-get install libauthen-pam-perl libnet-ssleay-perl libpam-runtime openssl perl perl-modules

#cd webmin*

#sudo ./

Basically just hit enter and choose SSL and the auto start the service at boot
Web server port (default 10000): (Feel Free to change this)
Login name (default admin):
Login password: AReallyGoodONE
Password again: AReallyGoodONE
Use SSL (y/n): y
Start Webmin at boot time (y/n): y

Now you can login with the user/password that you set at the https://IpAddressOfYourMachine:10000

    Thank you, this worked wonders! However, Webmin has changed versions to 290 since you published this. Thought I would let you know if you wanted to update it.

    you can also simply get it with apt-get:
    sudo apt-get install webmin

    What can I say I was almost pulled to the Dark Side (Windoze).

    Jedi Master Invaleed lead me to the light. Thank you very much sir for cogent directions on installing Webmin on Ubuntu.

    It just might be that your “the one” who can teach many *nix ubergeeks to write detailed easy to follow directions. Nothing is worse to trying to figure out what is stuck in someone’s head and didn’t find it’s way to the “detailed” installation instructions!

    Thanks again
    If write *nix books in this detail I promise to buy them!

    Webmin now at version 1.400 if you want to upgrade

    Beware that webmin is not supported in Ubuntu or Debian because it can mess up your config files and cause upgrade problems. And see e.g. this report of a Postfix problem that turned out to be webmin adding ‘sudo’ to their smtpd_recipient_restrictions.

    As of hardy, see also Ebox and

    Well, I wish I could say I had the same success as others, but when I typed gzip webmin-1.270.tar.gz | tar xvf-
    I received an error that told me: tar: Old option ‘f’ requires an argument
    gzip: webmin-1.270.tar.gz: no such file or directory

    Thanks, these directions worked like a charm. Now all I need is to find the ip address for my machine.
