On a previous post I explained how to Install Webmin on Debian VPS, this time I will explain how to install Webmin VPS on Centos. For this tutorial have say tests on a VPS with Centos 6.32 and Webmin 1,690.
Webmin is a web-based system configuration tool for Unix systems, although recent versions can also be installed and run on Windows. Thus, it allows to configure the operating system internals, such as users, disk quotas, services or configuration files, as well as modify and use open source application, such as Apache HTTP Server, PHP or MySQL.
Although this webmin actually used to adjust existing systems on servers, such as DNS servers, Mail servers and more. Webmin can also be used as a web hosting panel same as Kloxo and ZPanel.
Webmin is useful to manage the SSH server, useful for adding or removing users, look at the expiration date, etc.
How to Install Webmin on CentOS VPS:
As always, you need to be logged into YOUR VPS with root access. Then copy and paste the following command one by one and Enter.
# yum update && yum groupinstall “Development Tools”
# wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/webmin-1.690-1.noarch.rpm
# rpm -U webmin-1.690-1.noarch.rpm && chkconfig webmin on
The installation process takes a few minutes, when it is finished, please access your browser’s http://IPVPS:10000 where x is the IPVPS. Your VPS.
