The Book of Webmin

The Book of Webmin

How to use Webmin’s unique features, including integrating the most popular services (Apache, BIND, Sendmail, and more) as well as the standard system features (network configuration, disk configuration, users and groups, etc.). Tutorials show how to accomplish common tasks with each service.


Webmin is a web-based graphical UNIX system administration tool written by Jamie Cameron in the Perl programming language that is designed to be lightweight, functional, and easily extensible. Webmin has been translated to over 20 languages and dialects at the time of this writing, and has been embraced by a number of hardware and operating system vendors as their default system administration tool. It is extremely portable, offering support for more than 35 different UNIX-like Operating Systems and Linux distributions. And it is very easily extended to support new features and options, due to an open and well documented API.

Webmin also happens to be a fast and easy to use tool for general UNIX system administration. This document attempts to introduce to you many of the concepts you will need to maintain a UNIX system using Webmin. While no single volume can address every aspect of UNIX system administration, a real effort has been made to provide both a solid introduction to many important tasks, and a nearly comprehensive reference to a typical UNIX server and its parts.
