Install Webmin on Ubuntu

Just a quick note (as I keep forgetting, and a cut-and-paste solution is a quicker time to market) – but you knew that already. Installing Webmin is quite simple (download directly, or from the mirrors). Currently, 1.510-2 is the latest version – check on www.webmin.com for further details. As an aside, the book Webmin Kompakt – by Holger Reibold – is available for download!

So here’s a simple step-by-step:

Install your dependencies:
apt-get install perl libnet-ssleay-perl openssl libauthen-pam-perl libpam-runtime libio-pty-perl apt-show-versions libapt-pkg-perl

Download the Webmin deb file:
wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/webmin_1.510-2_all.deb

Install the File:
dpkg --install webmin_1.510-2_all.deb

So, in a simple single copy and paste:

apt-get install perl libnet-ssleay-perl openssl libauthen-pam-perl libpam-runtime libio-pty-perl apt-show-versions libapt-pkg-perl
wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/webmin_1.510-2_all.deb
dpkg --install webmin_1.510-2_all.deb

Alternatively:

wget -O- http://blog.sven.co.za/linux/install-webmin-ubuntu | sh

I’m sure it’s elsewhere, too…
