How To: Install Usermin 1.540 on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Server

I’ve installed Webmin 1.620 on my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Server. Now I’m going to add the Usermin 1.540 package to add web-base features such as webmail, mail filtering, password changes and more for our Unix users.  Read more about all the extended administration features that Usermin provides at the Webmin website, (http://www.webmin.com/usermin.html).

I’m going to start by logging into my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS server and updating aptitude:

nmino@ubuntu12:~$ sudo apt-get update

Then I’m going to update the installed packages:

nmino@ubuntu12:~$ sudo apt-get upgrade-all

Now that my installed pacakges are up-to-date, I’m going to use wget to download the Usermin Debian package:

nmino@ubuntu12:~$ wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/usermin_1.540_all.deb

After the package downloads run dpkg to install it:

nmino@ubuntu12:~$ sudo dpkg -i usermin_1.540_all.deb

You should get output such as this:

Selecting previously unselected package usermin.
(Reading database … 73366 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking usermin (from usermin_1.540_all.deb) …
Setting up usermin (1.540) …
Usermin install complete. You can now login to https://ubuntu12:20000/
as any user on the system.
Processing triggers for ureadahead …
nmino@ubuntu12:~$

Usermin is setup and running on your Ubutnu 12.04 LTS Server and you can login by browsing to:

https://your-server:20000 (where your-server is the IP Address or hostname of your Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Server).

Usermin also integrates into Webmin so you can easily configure Usermin by browsing to your Webmin installation and selecting the Usermin Configuration Module.
