In our last post we see that how we can access our home ubuntu server online. After installing the ubuntu server we have only the default webpage of the server is available to access from any browser. And we cannot access the command line of the server from other computers. If we need access the command line of the server from other computers, we have to use the putty software in the clint computer. And by using the username and password we can access the server. Otherwise the command line of the server can directly access through the connected monitor of the server. But managing the server through only the command line is little difficult, util you are not expert in that. So in this post we will explain how to Installing webmin in Ubuntu server. This will act as a interface between server and us. through this we can easily manage our server. And it can access from browser of any computers. So after the installation of webmin wecan remove server monitor and other accessory.
Installing webmin in Ubuntu server
Please proceed the following steps to install webmin in you ubuntu server.
Copy and paste below cmand in your command line of the server and hit enter. This command is use to down load the latest version of the webmin package to our server.
Run the below command. It is used to update the apt-get index file for latest updates of the packages. And this step is very important.
sudo apt-get update
Run the below command to get required dependency for the webmin package.
sudo apt-get install perl libnet-ssleay-perl openssl libauthen-pam-perl libpam-runtime libio-pty-perl apt-sh
Now we can run the below command to install the webmin package.
sudo dpkg --install webmin-current.deb
After the successful installation ww can see the output saying that,
Webmin install complete. You can now login to https://ip-XXX-XX-XX-XXX:10000/
as root with your root password, or as any user who can use sudo.
Now at this point we can access the webmin package of our server through any browser in our home network. For that we have to type https:our server ip:10000.
now we can see our webmin control panel as shown below.
By this control panel we can do almost everything to our ubuntu server. If you need any help and support regarding this matter you are welcome to contact us through our forum.
