Installing and Configuring Webmin
Administering Linux and Unix-based servers does not need to be the scourge of your work day.With a handy tool called Webmin as part of your arsenal, you can regain full control of yourservers’ setup and configuration via the Web browser.To Install Webmin and get started, drop bywww.webmin.comand download the latest release.You can use RPMs for Red Hat and related systems that support binary installations or you canbuild Webmin from source. Webmin supports a large number of UNIX variants, including OS X. Toinstall the rpm, simply open a terminal session, and type in:
# rpm –ivh webmin*
Or
# yum install webmin* -y
As root user in the directory in which Webmin was downloadedWebmin is the most powerful administration tool in its nature. We will use it to set up our DNS,but I will not go over it in detail because we already know how to use other administrative tools.It is not difficult to use because it is web based, in any event, you should know that you can useit remotely to administrate the system. In this HowTo we’re going to use Webmin to setup
DNSServer
and
mail, www
and
ftp
servers on Linux CentOS5.While here also note our hostname:
cos52.linuxauth.com
 Other servers are:
mail.linuxauth.comwww.linuxauth.comftp.linuxauth.com
Check out
/etc/hosts
to ensure that you have a correct setup, in our case, it’s as follows:
# Do not remove the following line, or various programs# that require network functionality will fail.127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost192.168.83.15 cos52.linuxauth.com cos52 mail www ftp::1 localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6
Make sure that all the required services are running including webmin, if it is already installed. If you need help for installation, refer to software installation in this book.Ok here we go…

Open the web browser and type:

in our case:
http://cos52.linuxauth.com:1000

When you open the web browser and execute the 10000 port you will see an error, describingthat the web server is running in SSL mode and gives you a link to try instead.

Note: For security practices, never use Remember login password.Also note that this is run by root, but you can still give permission to other users to run it.I suggest never give this power to any other user except to you, the administrator.Click on Login to enter Webmin…

Figure 4 above shows Webmin's home page a generic most wanted administrative tool. But of course with all the tools, you probably won't rely on webmin for all admin purposes. Although,Webmin is useful for automating tasks, for teaching purpose, it’s always preferable to do things
