Installing Webmin on CentOS 5.5 Tutorial

Webmincentos This brief yet effective tutorial will instruct you on how to install CentOS 5.5 with Webmin, a web-based interface for system administration for Linux

The assumption for this CentOS 5.5 Webmin tutorial is that you are running as root and have a basic understanding of the software required but if you follow this tutorial you should be able to complete the task successfully.

Learn more about Webmin: http://www.webmin.com/

Preliminary Note:

I am using a CentOS 5.5 32bit server in this tutorial:

* centos01.how2centos.com (IP 10.0.0.3)

Let’s begin by installing the GPG key with which the packages are signed

Add the Webmin YUM Repository

or if you prefer using an editor

Now to install Webmin

Finally browse to your machine on port 10000

    Very useful. I did have to do some more searching to work out how to open up port 10000 – this link was good for that: http://controlpanelblog.com/webmin/configuring-your-firewall-for-webmin.html. Thank you!

    This did not work: # rpm –import http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc
    > error: http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc: import read failed(0).

    workaround
    cd /tmp
    wget http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc
    rpm –import jcameron-key.asc

    Minor detail but for newbs like me I almost missed it: The end of the install will provide you with the login path to webmin.  I was trying to access it by IP address and that would not work. 

    Finally browse to your machine on port 10000

    http://centos01.how2centos.com:10000 (I was replaceing with IP and did not work)

    Then saw the path provided by setup and that worked.  Anyone know how to edit a config file that allows for login by IP or by hostname?

    You’re missing part of your IP address and it’s port 10000
