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

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

Add the Webmin YUM Repository

# cat > /etc/yum.repos.d/webmin.repo << EOF
[Webmin]
name=Webmin Distribution Neutral
baseurl=http://download.webmin.com/download/yum
enabled=1
EOF

or if you prefer using an editor

# vi /etc/yum.repos.d/webmin.repo
[Webmin]
name=Webmin Distribution Neutral
baseurl=http://download.webmin.com/download/yum
enabled=1

Now to install Webmin

# yum install webmin

Finally browse to your machine on port 10000
