What is Webmin?
Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix. Using any modern web browser, you can setup user accounts, Apache, DNS, file sharing and much more. Webmin removes the need to manually edit Unix configuration files like /etc/passwd, and lets you manage a system from the console or remotely. See the standard modules page for a list of all the functions built into Webmin, or check out the screenshots.

I'm Running Fedora Linux. So, I choose the RPM...
Installing the RPM
If you are using the RPM version of Webmin, first download the file from the downloads page , or run the command :
wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/webmin-1.630-1.noarch.rpm and then run the command :
rpm -U webmin-1.630-1.noarch.rpm The rest of the install will be done automatically to the directory /usr/libexec/webmin, the administration username set to root and the password to your current root password. You should now be able to login to Webmin at the URL http://localhost:10000/. Or if accessing it remotely, replace localhost with your system's IP address.
If you want to connect from a remote server and your system has a firewall installed, see this page for instructions on how to open up port 10000.
Using the Webmin YUM repository
If you like to install and update Webmin via RPM, create the /etc/yum.repos.d/webmin.repo file containing :
[Webmin] You should also fetch and install my GPG key with which the packages are signed, with the commands :
name=Webmin Distribution Neutral
wget http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc You will now be able to install with the command :
rpm --import jcameron-key.asc
yum install webmin All dependencies should be resolved automatically.
Supported RPM-Based Distributions
The Webmin RPM can be installed on Fedora, Redhat Enterprise, older Redhat versions, CentOS and all other distributions derived from Fedora or RHEL. In addition, it can be installed on systems running Mandriva, SuSE, TurboLinux, Caldera OpenLinux.http://www.webmin.com/rpm.html

Webmin is a web-based system configuration tool for Unix-like systems, although recent versions can also be installed and run on Windows. With it, it is possible to configure operating system internals, such as users, disk quotas, services or configuration files, as well as modify and control open source apps, such as the Apache HTTP Server, PHP or MySQL.
Webmin is largely based on Perl, running as its own process and web server. It defaults to TCP port 10000 for communicating, and can be configured to use SSL if OpenSSL is installed with additional required Perl Modules.
It is built around modules, which have an interface to the configuration files and the Webmin server. This makes it easy to add new functionality. Due to Webmin's modular design, it is possible for anyone who is interested to write plugins for desktop configuration.
Webmin also allows for controlling many machines through a single interface, or seamless login on other webmin hosts on the same subnet or LAN.
Webmin can be expanded by installing modules, which can be custom made. Aside from this, there are two other major projects that extend the functionality of webmin:
- Usermin presents and controls a subset of the features available in Webmin, such as webmail and other user-level tasks, rather than administrator-level tasks.
- Virtualmin, which is a web hosting control panel. Out of the box, Virtualmin enables users to host websites under domains. This gives the server admin and the end user an easy to use interface for managing their websites.
Webmin released Minecraft Server Module 1.0 in January 2013, and version 1.1 in March 2013. The module presents a very basic GUI for server administration. While server management application Multicraft may be more sleekly designed, the free version of Multicraft is limited to 10 simultaneous players. The Webmin Minecraft server is free and open source with no limitations on simultaneous players.
