    Getting Webmin to work on Ubuntu server

    First add the Webmin repositories:

    sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

    add:

    #webmin repositories
    deb http://download.webmin.com/download/repository sarge contrib
    deb http://webmin.mirror.somersettechsol....uk/repository sarge contrib

    Exit and save

    add the GPG key you need:

    sudo su (you are now root or close to it be careful and if anyone knows of a better way to do this please post it)
    cd /root
    wget http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc
    apt-key add jcameron-key.asc
    exit

    sudo apt-get install webmin

    This last part is really simple which must be why I didn't find it documented anywhere
    Opening ports needed for Webmin to work:

    sudo iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 10000 -j ACCEPT

    You may also need to make changes the settings for ufw

    sudo ufw allow webmin
    sudo ufw allow 10000

    use ifconfig to find your IP address

    https://your IP address:10000

    I think that's it if this doesn't work please tell me

    Hi

    I've installed ubuntu server 10.04 as a guest OS using virtual box in ubuntu lucid desktop.

    I've done everything you've mentioned here but I'm still unable to login i.e. the browser in desktop gives the following msg: 'The server at 192.168.1.4 is taking too long to respond.'.

    Please help.

    Thanks in advance.
