In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Webmin on Debian 10. For those of you who didn’t know, Webmin is a free control panel for managing VPS. Webmin is a web-based interface that is used to manage the VPS web hosting server. With the help of webmin you can setup user account, apache, DNS and file sharing, and other actions.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you through the step by step installation of Webmin on a Debian 10 (Buster) server.

Install Webmin on Debian 10 Buster

Step 1. Before we install any software, it’s important to make sure your system is up to date by running these following apt-get commands in the terminal:

apt update
apt upgrade
apt install software-properties-common apt-transport-https wget

Step 2. Installing Webmin on Debian 10.

First, enable the Webmin repository:

wget -q http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo add-apt-repository "deb [arch=amd64] http://download.webmin.com/download/repository sarge contrib"

Once the repository is enabled, install the Webmin package using the following command:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install webmin

Step 3. Configure Firewall for Webmin

By default, Webmin listens for connections on port 10000 on all network interfaces. If your server runs a UFW firewall, you’ll need to open the Webmin port:

sudo ufw allow 10000/tcp

Step 4. Accessing Webmin Interface.

Finally, Webmin is installed on your Debian server, launch your web browser and type your server’s hostname name or public IP address followed by the Webmin port 10000:

https://your_server_ip_or_hostname:10000/
