  1. One of the KEY features for me is that you can login to webmin using any sudo enabled account. You do NOT need to log in as root, and I would not recommend that.

  2. Hey Lawrence, great video thank you. I have a very specific question , eventhough this vid is almost 2 years old at this point.
    Could you perhaps show me how to add multiple server monitors with Nagios server monitoring in webmin? Thank you

  3. If anyone wants to run Webmin on Ubuntu in Azure, they've just released a template in the marketplace that fully sets this up for you: https://azuremarketplace.microsoft.com/en-us/marketplace/apps/cloud-infrastructure-services.ubuntu-webmin

  4. I was strongly thinking about moving to CPanel because I have never gotten email with Webmin working right and I need to rebuild my current server.

  5. I often feel that there is a misconception between "Internet-Access" and a private network environment.
    I was looking into Web-Domain-Hosting and somehow landed here.

  6. Hey, Lawrence,
    I have a question, what if I'm a sys admin in a company with lets say 20 users
    is it possible to let them login to Webmin without root user obviously and then each user could change their own password from there? lets say to svn or other stuff?
    basically we don't use nis or ActiveDirectory so they have like 3 users with the same name for 3 different services and we want to be able to let them change their own password on their free will without asking the IT to do it
    is it possible? if so it'd be great if you share it with me
    br,

  7. I agree that Cockpit is still pretty barebones. I have to say though that creating a network bridge interface was absolutely flawless on my CentOS 7 VM where I was testing. It simply configured the bridge based on the current settings of the then configured ethernet interface. I tried the same with Webmin and it was a complete fail. That said: I wish Cockpit had more modules for e.g. OpenVPN, IPSec, Samba and so forth. There is a distribution that has added its own module for OpenVPN to Cockpit. The distro is called Nethserver. However, I had problems with it from the beginning and didn't spend much time with it. I should retest with more patience though.

  8. Well thanks for this tutorial is it possible to use this webmin for a webhosting small bussiness? Actually i'm thinking of starting a small web hosting business and the prices of software like plesk or whmcs just blew my mind help!

  9. Even as a Redhat Admin, I have used it. Cough, cough…still use it…. In fact alot of the very same modulus that you avoid , so do I. LOL I do like the email notification you get when an update for security patches are ready to be loaded. Server monitoring (multiple servers) and of the drive monitoring, LVM and iSCSI setup. To many features to list.

    Thank you for a great video.

  10. "Custom Commands" – actually it's not a replacement for SSH, it's a cool way to setup your own commands. I, for example, set a command to update my python server from github, which is a string of multiple commands. Much easier compared to SSH, type it all or even copy-paste it all in, etc. Just open, click, done.

    Also, cockpit can be used for Docker and VM managment, I did not find it in Webmin.

  11. This is cool, but is there similar review for Ajenti? I've been using Webmin for a lot of time now, but I wonder how Ajenti compares to it.

  12. guys , i already install ssl using let encrypt , but it only for the webmin link , but for original domain , it not installed . so it normal ??

  13. I've been using webmin since the late 90's. It's a good tool, especially if you're using Debian/Ubuntu… it also works well with CentOS/RedHat. There are some modules missing for some very popular software that is in use on linux servers… Nginx being just one example.
    However if you decide to using CentOS/RedHat I highly recommend CWP (CentOS Web Panel) instead of Webmin. It's just as good and has a very fast interface. I use both depending on what OS my clients use or need.

  14. Love the sharing of this great piece of software. I've been using Cockpit for some time now and would like to give Webmin a go. My concern is Docker container control didn't see it in the tutorial.

  15. Webmin is great tool and has been for years. Been using is for almost 20 years!! Night and day difference from way back to now.

  16. Webmin was very useful for learning the different options for me. Do you have an opinion of installing webmin via the wget and deb package vs using apt-get with there repository? What is the difference between webmin, virtualmin, and usermin?
