How To Install Webmin on CentOS

This tutorial will guide you through 3 easy steps to installing Webmin on CentOS. This has worked on CentOS 6.
 
Step 1:
 
-- PASTE BELOW THIS LINE --
cat > /etc/yum.repos.d/webmin.repo << EOF
[Webmin]
name=Webmin Distribution Neutral
#baseurl=http://download.webmin.com/download/yum
mirrorlist=http://download.webmin.com/download/yum/mirrorlist
enabled=1
EOF
-- END OF PASTE --
 
This adds the Webmin repos to your CentOS installation.
 
Step 2:
 
-- PASTE BELOW THIS LINE--
rpm --import http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc
-- END OF PASTE --
 
This imports the Webmin GPG key into your CentOS key ring.
 
Step 3:
 
yum install webmin
 
This will install Webmin for you. Your Webmin installation is running on port 10000/tcp on your VPS server.
 
For example http://1.2.3.4:10000
 
Replace 1.2.3.4 with the IP address of your VPS.
