Install Webmin on Ubuntu 12.04

Note: This post assumes a web server is already installed. Note: This post assumes you have administrative rights on the system. Like always you should update and upgrade the installation.

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get upgrade


Download Webmin

Visit and download the .deb version of Webmin.

cd /tmp



Now that we have the package we can install it.

sudo dpkg -i webmin_1.590_all.deb

Actually dpkg will not be able to install Webmin because of some missing dependencies. This is why we need an extra step which will fetch the missing dependencies for us.

sudo apt-get install -f

Now you can log-in to the newly installed Webmin interface by going to the following address. Just add the IP address of the server.


Remember the log-in credentials for Webmin are the username and password you used to log in to the server. Webmin login
