Webmin, the web based system administration interface for Linux & Unix works very well with Debian. I use Webmin on the server that runs this web site, which is also running Debian.
The combination of Debian and Webmin works very well. It seems like the two were made for each other.
Getting Webmin for Debian is easy. What follows are two ways to install Webmin on Debian
Download Webmin for Debian as a DEB package
You can get it by downloading it from here and then installing it by running
dpkg --install webmin_1.530_all.deb
But another way to get webmin for Debian can be accomplished by using the Webmin APT repository
Using the Webmin APT repository to install Webmin for Debian
Just add the following lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list file :
deb download.webmin.com/download/repository sarge contrib
deb webmin.mirror.somersettechsolutions.co.uk/repository sarge contrib
Next, get the repository key by running:
apt-key add jcameron-key.asc
And finally you can install Webmin with the following commands (which will install Webmin and all its dependencies):
apt-get install webmin
After installing Webmin
After you've installed webmin, you need to log in to webmin at YourServerAddress where you'll need to run through the post install configuration.
