Webmin Installation on Ubuntu 20.04

No matter how hard core cli user you are it very often that you will need a GUI to perform some tasks just because, you can’t remember the commands or you want a better visualization (Firewall ports comes to mind).

I know some prefer Cockpit but I vote for Webmin. Here is how to install in on Ubuntu 20.04

SSH to your server and get root privileges.

sudo su

Edit the repositories list

nano /etc/apt/sources.list

Scroll all the way to the end of the file and add

deb http://download.webmin.com/download/repository sarge contrib

Save and Exit

Download and install the key of the author

wget -q -O- http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc | sudo apt-key add

apt update

to update the repositories

and install webmin

apt install webmin

Now you can access the GUI interface by

https://<IP address or FQDN>:10000
