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:

cd /root
wget www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc
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 update
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.

That's all there is to intalling Webmin for Debian. I hope you enjoy Webmin as much as I have. And if you need any help with webmin, check out the webmin support forum. sourceforge.net/projects/webadmin/forums/forum/600155 or the Webmin Wiki . doxfer.webmin.com/Webmin
