Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Webmin is a browser-based configuration tool for Linux systems. By using it, you can easily manage user accounts, disk quotas, services, configuration files, manage Apache servers, DNS, file sharing and other things. It is quite a useful admin tool.
The latest version available is Webmin 1.7, which has been released a while ago. Among others, it got support for both CentOS 7 and RHEL 7, the network configuration module got support for the “ip” command, when ifconfig is not installed, support for editing quotas on XFS filesystem has been implemented and support for nslcd to the LDAP Client module has been added.
In this article I will show you how to install Webmin 1.7 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 13 Maya, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Elementary OS 0.2 Luna, Deepin 2014, Linux Lite 2.0, LXLE 14.04 and other Ubuntu 14.04 derivatives.
Because it is available via repository, installing Webmin 1.7 on Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 12.04 and derivative systems is easy. All you have to do is add the repositories to your system, download and export the key, update the local repository index and install the webmin package. Like this:
