Installing webmin on Ubuntu Server

Same disclaimer as last post: This is mostly for my memory, but you’re welcome to the comments section below.

This is for Ubuntu Server 12.04 64-bit.

In order to install webmin from apt, follow these instructions, reposted here for my own convenience:

edit /etc/apt/sources.list and add to the bottom:

deb http://download.webmin.com/download/repository/ sarge contrib
deb http://webmin.mirror.somersettechsolutions.co.uk/repository/ sarge contrib

then, to add the gpg signature, run:

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

lastly, install:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install webmin

If it complains about missing dependencies, first edit /etc/apt/sources.list and uncomment any lines for universe. Then, install these:

sudo apt-get install perl libnet-ssleay-perl openssl libauthen-pam-perl libpam-runtime libio-pty-perl apt-show-versions python

Coming up…even more…

    It installed fine, works ok-ish, the problems I encountered with it are the file explorer isn’t stable at all it crashed on me a few times, also the hard disk manager I found was imposable to use I couldn’t accomplish my task which was to add another hard disk to the LVM pool and extend the pool across all disks say for example 1 drive + 1 drive = 1 big drive yeah, maybe it was me I couldn’t figure it out spent a few hours playing too on that, such a simple task too, I found when adding a drive to the pool there is no way to add the “8e” Linux LVM so I had to SSH and do everything. I also couldn’t get email to work I wanted to use say gmail for everything nope can’t do that, the sql server admin is really poor compared to phpmyadmin, I really don’t like that allot of features use unsigned Java applets, it’s kind of a known thing soon your not going to be-able to run unsigned java applets in any browser at all, installing I had to run this sudo apt-get install perl libnet-ssleay-perl openssl libauthen-pam-perl libpam-runtime libio-pty-perl apt-show-versions python then all that stuff got updated.
    I wouldn’t recommend this app, if you don’t know how to admin your server from the terminal only then look at something like zentyla I never used it bet it kinda looks like the best thing going right now.
