Virtualmin is a widely used web based control panel and best cpanel alternative for Linux servers. It support Redhat 7, CentOS 7, Ubuntu 16.04, Debian 8 and installation process is too easy. Webmin is part of virtualmin, but we can also only install webmin for small server like VPS.
Installation & Configuration of Free Virtualmin/Webmin-
In this tutorial I will share how to install and setup the free version of virtualmin. First we need to update the system packages because in almost all the newly provisioned servers, most of the dependency packages will be the same.
Redhat / CentOS:
sudo yum -y update
Debian / Ubuntu:
sudo apt-get update
Download the autamated Virtualmin installer:
sudo wget http://software.virtualmin.com/gpl/scripts/install.sh
Run & Install the autamated Virtualmin installer:
sudo sh install.sh
This will begin the installation and it will take around 5min for the process to complete. but slower internet connection may takes more then hours. our system should have everything it needs to provide a full-feature virtual web hosting environment after installation.
Now login to Virtualmin by browsing to port 10000 [Example: https://IPADDRESS:10000] on the address of your server using the HTTPS protocol. Ignore the SSL certificate validation error (the SSL certificate is a self-signed one after initial installation, but can be replaced with a valid certificate after initial configuration is complete). Your Virtualmin login Username & Password are root user [username-ROOT & Password-ROOT PASSWORD].
Follow the steps in the post-install wizard to setup Virtualmin to suit your environment and needs. Virtualmin will check the configuration of the system and validate some server settings to insure your system is ready for service. You must restart your server after installation and web based setup to ensure that all service is working properly. Then create your 1st web hosting account by Clicking “Create Virtual Server” to start making your first website in Virtualmin!
