WeBmiN InsTallaTion on FreeBSD 7

Allo guys..

Now I try to sharing with my experience about FreeBS server..Now I talking about Webmin..

Webmin is a Web-based administration interface for the system (System Administration) in Unix, including FreeBSD. Using a browser that supports tables and forms, we can set up user accounts, Apache, firewall, and so forth. Webmin consists of a simple web server and some CGI programs which directly update system files like /etc/inetd.conf.

Webmin requires PERL, so PERL then make sure that already installed on your machine..

I am using ports for install of Webmin on FreeBSD..Try this script :

#cd /usr/ports/sysutils/webmin/

#make install clean

Okee..please wait your installation and if you have finished, you can config the Webmin configuration like this :

Once installed the Webmin configuration now …. make sure that webmin is running at the time of booting. So edit file /etc/rc.conf and adding this script :


Save and close this file..Then we run the /usr/local/lib/webmin/setup.sh to setup the next configuration, type:


So Will appear :

*            Welcome to the Webmin setup script, version 1.420        *
Webmin is a web-based interface that allows Unix-like operating
systems and common Unix services to be easily administered.

Installing Webmin in /usr/local/lib/webmin ...

Webmin uses separate directories for configuration files and log files.
Unless you want to run multiple versions of Webmin at the same time
you can just accept the defaults.

Log file directory [/var/log/webmin]: [ Push Enter]

Webmin is written entirely in Perl. Please enter the full path to the
Perl 5 interpreter on your system.

Full path to perl (default /usr/bin/perl):  [Push Enter]

Testing Perl ...
Perl seems to be installed ok

Operating system name:    FreeBSD
Operating system version: 7.0

Webmin uses its own password protected web server to provide access
to the administration programs. The setup script needs to know :
 - What port to run the web server on. There must not be another
   web server already using this port.
 - The login name required to access the web server.
 - The password required to access the web server.
 - If the webserver should use SSL (if your system supports it).
 - Whether to start webmin at boot time.

Web server port (default 10000):  [push enter]
Login name (default admin):  [push enter]
Login password: [set your Password]
Password again:
Use SSL (y/n): y
Creating web server config files..

Creating access control file..

Creating start and stop scripts..

Copying config files..

Changing ownership and permissions ..

Running postinstall scripts ..

Okey..If your Installation is done,you can reboot your machine and you can check this installation through the web browser with set this url :




do not forget to remember to use https rather than http because webmin using SSL

during the first run webmin from a browser, you will receive a certificate message, accept and execute aja webmin.

Okey..You have finished the installation and it’s so simple allraight??!! hehe22
