Installation of Webmin on a CentOS server

Repository Configuration

Before install Webmin, you'll need to set up your repositories to pull the Webmin package via yum. To do this, we need to create "webmin.repo" file in the /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory.

sudo nano /etc/yum.repos.d/webmin.repo

In this file, place the following lines:

name=Webmin Distribution Neutral

Save and close the file.
Now we'll import the GPG key for the repository.

sudo rpm --import

Now the repository is configured! 

Install Pre-Requisites
Now that we have the software downloaded we need to install a few pre-requisites before installation. Type the following command below to install the required modules:

sudo yum -y install perl-Net-SSLeay
Note: It *is* case sensitive.

Now it is time to install the Webmin package.To do so, use the command below

sudo yum install webmin

Once the installation has completed you should get the following message:

Webmin install completed . You can now login https:server:10000/ as root with your root password.
