Webmin Install Ubuntu 16.04 Server

Installing Webmin

Unfortunately, the Ubuntu server doesn’t include any form of GUI tool to use for administrative purposes. You can easily install Webmin to make the server admin task far easier. Here’s how.

  1. Log in to your Ubuntu server.
  2. Issue the command sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/webmin.list.
  3. Add the following two lines to the file:
    deb http://download.webmin.com/download/repository sarge contribdeb http://download.webmin.com/download/repository sarge contrib
  4. Hit [CTRL][x] and save the file.
  5. Download the Webmin key with the command sudo wget http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc.
  6. Add the downloaded key with the command sudo apt-key add jcameron-key.asc.
  7. Update apt with the command sudo apt-get update.
  8. Install Webmin with the command sudo apt-get install webmin.
