How to install Webmin


#1

Does anybody know how to install Webmin on UCS


#2

Hi,

what would you want to do with Webmin?
Are there any features which are not available in the Management Console?

cheers,
Dirk

I like webmin, very easy to use, you can start, restart and stop services, check which services are running, a file manager that lets you set permissions on a file easily so you can edit it, lets you upload and download files, setup partitions on new disks, resize partitions, create raid drives, setup printers, burn CD’s

I would also like to install Openchange and Sogo, this allows an Exchange like groupware that does not require a separate connector like Zarafa does

If I remember correctly, webmin was removed from Debian due to security issues. Anyway, webmin provides an Debian package:
prdownloads.sourceforge.net/weba … 30_all.deb

You have to install some dependencies, such as libauthen-pam-perl apt-show-versions. Theses packages are only in the unmaintained repository.

An example[code]

download package

wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/webmin_1.730_all.deb

activate unmaintained repository and install dependencies

ucr set repository/online/unmaintained=‘yes’
univention-install perl libnet-ssleay-perl openssl libauthen-pam-perl libpam-runtime libio-pty-perl apt-show-versions python

install webmin

dpkg -i webmin_1.730_all.deb

open port 10000

ucr set security/packetfilter/package/webmin/tcp/10000/all=ACCEPT
/etc/init.d/univention-firewall restart
[/code]

Unfortunately, if ssl is activated, webmin segfaults. SSL can be disabled in /etc/webmin/miniserv.conf but I think it is not the best idea. Maybe someone knows webmin and perl better and can have a look.

One thing webmin have that i’m missing in univention is “rsync ui” in webmin is possible schedule files backups with rsync with a graphic interface.
