How To: Install Webmin on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Server, (10.10 Also)

These are the steps I take to install Webmin on the Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Servers that I deploy. (Also works on 10.10 Server and Desktop)

Download the Webmin package:

nmino@ubuntu:~$ wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/webadmin/webmin/1.610/webmin_1.610_all.deb

As you can see, I have some unresolved dependencies. The easy fix for this is to run the apt-get -f install command:

nmino@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get -f install

That’s it. Webmin 1.610 is now installed and running on your Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Server and you should be able to login at:

http://192.168.1.100:10000

(Use your servers IP Address).
