Install the Webmin YUM Repository

# cat > /etc/yum.repos.d/webmin.repo << EOF

Add the GPG Key and Install Webmin

# rpm --import http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc

# yum install webmin

or if you prefer using an editor

Installing Webmin, CentOS 6

Finally browse to your machine on port 10000


  • Sggigante

    before yum install is always a good idea do yum update

  • Tobbe

    In the “Add the GPG Key and Install Webmin” section there is a small typo.
    Instead of:
    # rpm –import http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc

    it should say
    # rpm –-import http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc

    Just wanted to point it out, if someone else gets stuck in the same place 🙂
    Great work! Thanks!

    i have install my server . installation ok but problem is when i try to access my webmin using port its show The connection has timed out.   any one can help me?

  • Glen Huey

    Same problem here.  This was attempted on a minimal install of CentOS so there may be some dependencies that are missing.

  • How2CentOS

     Try this on the webmin machine:

    # telnet localhost 10000

    If it connects then check your firewall settings

  • How2CentOS

     See telnet response above
