How to install Webmin on Ubuntu 9.04 by using Ubuntu (.deb) Packages

Before downloading or install the .deb Webmin package run the following commands, the 1st command will install the tool wget for download packages from the internet,

sudo apt-get install wget

Before installing any packages it’s always a good idea to get a full up to date list of packages. This can be done by running the follow command,

sudo apt-get update

The next set of commands will install some perl-related libraries required by webmin,

sudo apt-get install perl libnet-ssleay-perl openssl libauthen-pam-perl libpam-runtime libio-pty-perl libmd5-perl

If you run into any issues running the above perl relatd commands, try running the following again,

sudo apt-get update

Now we can download the Webmin .deb package,

wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/webmin_1.490_all.deb

Install the Debian package with dpkg, not Aptitude,

sudo dpkg -i webmin_1.490_all.deb

To access your successful install of webmin, goto https://[serverIP]:10000
