Install Webmin on OS X

Mon, Sep 8, 2008

Mac OS X, Server / Web Apps

Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix. Using any modern web browser, you can setup user accounts, Apache, DNS, file sharing and much more. Webmin removes the need to manually edit Unix configuration files like /etc/passwd, and lets you manage a system from the console or remotely.

1. Download it at http://www.webmin.com/download.html

2. Extract it and drag the webmin folder into your Sites folder

3.  Open Terminal and enter:

sudo /Users/yourusername/Sites/webminfoldername/setup.sh

4. Follow the prompts keeping the suggested default paths.

5. Access Webmin via your browser at http://127.0.0.1:10000

    Thanks, it does work for SL 1.6.2 server.

    Get rid of the DNS module on the AdminServer package and use Webmin for BIND administration. It allows to use views and other functionality unavailable from the crappy Apple DNS Admin Server plugin.
    And by getting rid of the DNS plugin you are safe from configuration files corruption done by the Apple module.
