How to Install Webmin in Ubuntu

From the little help that I can get over the internet, I found out that you need to install the following packages to prepare the system for Webmin installation.

Run the following command over SSH or Ubuntu Desktop’s terminal window (Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal).

sudo apt-get install perl libnet-ssleay-perl openssl libauthen-pam-perl libpam-runtime libio-pty-perl libmd5-perl 

(Learn how to configure SSH on Ubuntu 8.10 if you want to have a remote access to your Ubuntu box).

Download the latest version of Webmin by running the following command (visit webmin download section for newer versions)

wget http://ignum.dl.sourceforge.net/project/webadmin/webmin/1.500/webmin_1.500_all.deb

After the package has been downloaded, run the following command to install it

sudo dpkg -i webmin_1.500_all.deb 

You should now be able to login to Webmin at the URL https://localhost:10000/ using root or any other user with sudo access.
