Webmin is a modern, web control panel for any Linux machine. It allows you to administer your server through an simple interface. With Webmin, you can change settings for common packages on the fly.

In this tutorial, you'll install and configure Webmin on your server and secure access to the interface with a valid certificate using Let's Encrypt. You'll then use Webmin to add new user accounts, and update all packages on your server from the dashboard.


To complete this tutorial, you will need:

Step 1 — Installing Webmin

First, we need to add the Webmin repository so that we can easily install and update Webmin using our package manager. We do this by adding the repository to the /etc/apt/sources.list file.

Open the file in your editor:

  • sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

Then add this line to the bottom of the file to add the new repository:

 . . . 
deb sarge contrib

Save the file and exit the editor.

Next, add the Webmin PGP key so that your system will trust the new repository:

  • wget
  • sudo apt-key add jcameron-key.asc

Next, update the list of packages to include the Webmin repository:

  • sudo apt-get update

Then install Webmin:

  • sudo apt-get install webmin

Once the installation finishes, you be presented with the following output:

Webmin install complete. You can now login to 
https://your_server_ip:10000 as root with your 
root password, or as any user who can use `sudo`.

Please copy down this information, as you will need it for the next step.
