Manage Linux Box with webmin
Webmin is a valuable tool used for the configuration of Linux-based servers. I install Webmin by default on all of my Linux boxes simply due to itâ€™s ease of use. Webmin installs an HTTP-based GUI which you can get to by using port 10000 from a browser.
To install Webmin, first you need to download the RPM file. There are two ways to do this. First, you can go to www.webmin.com, download the latest RPM, and then get it to your box somehow (typically I would use FTP to do this). Alternatively, you can skip the middleman and download the Webmin RPM direct from the linux CLI using wget. I typically download installs to /usr/local.

rpm -ivh webmin-1.290-1.noarch.rpm
