Install Latest Webmin on CentOS, RHEL, of Fedora

This post will cover installing the latest Webmin on CentOS

The same procedure and rpm is used for Fedora and RHEL.

1. SSH to your server and first install perl-Net-SSLeay using yum

[root@server7]# yum -y install perl-Net-SSLeay

2. Download latest Webmin release for CentOS from: http://www.webmin.com/download.html using wget

[root@server7]# wget http://www.webmin.com/download/rpm/webmin-current.rpm

* Using the http://www.webmin.com/download/rpm/webmin-current.rpm url will always download the latest version.

3. Verify the integrity of the Webmin rpm using MD5. To do this, use the md5sum command

[root@server7]# md5sum webmin-1.831-1.noarch.rpm
c2c3c317ca44f1de78d88ef512861c7e  webmin-1.831-1.noarch.rpm

Compare the output above to the official MD5 Checksum on the Webmin Site.

The MD5 Checksum listed on the Webmin site, c2c3c317ca44f1de78d88ef512861c7e, matches our output above, so we are ready to install.

4. Install the Webmin rpm.

[root@server7]# rpm -i webmin-1.831-1.noarch.rpm 

You should get a message at the end of the install informing you that you can reach the installation at: https://hostname(or server IP):10000
