How to install Webmin on CentOS 6.2

Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Linux/Unix. You can setup user accounts, Apache, DNS,DHCP, file sharing and much more by using any modern web browser.
Before installing the Webmin,disabled the SELinux:

Make SELINUX=disabled:

Restart the Server!!
First, we need to install the dependencies with this command:

sudo yum install perl

Also, install the wget:

sudo yum install wget

Now, we need to download the Webmin rpm package from Sourceforge (I download it in my home directory):


Then just run the following command:

sudo rpm -U webmin-1.580-1.noarch.rpm

Webmin is installed now and you will be able to access it via a browser using, http://server-ip:10000. In my case it is,http://CentOS:10000.
Configure the iptables rule in order to allow access to the Webmin:

sudo iptables -I INPUT 4 -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 10000 -j ACCEPT
sudo service iptables save

Now access Webmin via a browser using, http://server-ip:10000(In my case it is,http://CentOS:10000):

After login, Webmin main page will show you the summary of your server:

Hope this will help you!
