Installing Webmin on Ubuntu Server

- Posted in Quick Tip by with comments

Here's how to install Webmin on your Ubuntu Server.

First, download the latest version:

wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/webmin_1.860_all.deb

Then install it with dpkg:

sudo dpkg -i webmin_1.860_all.deb

Oh noes, an error!1!eleven1!!

Unpacking webmin (1.860) ... dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of webmin: webmin depends on libnet-ssleay-perl; however: Package libnet-ssleay-perl is not installed. webmin depends on libauthen-pam-perl; however: Package libauthen-pam-perl is not installed. webmin depends on libio-pty-perl; however: Package libio-pty-perl is not installed. webmin depends on apt-show-versions; however: Package apt-show-versions is not installed. dpkg: error processing package webmin (--install): dependency problems - leaving unconfigured Processing triggers for systemd (229-4ubuntu7) ... Errors were encountered while processing: webmin

Yikes! Good thing there's a simple trick to fix dependency issues:

sudo apt -f install

And now it's installed and ready to use!
