Webmin: Use Custom Logo on Login Page

On a default installation, your Webmin login page looks like below:

To suppress both the Webmin logo and the “Webmin” text from the login page, add below to

Webmin > Webmin Configuration > Webmin Themes > Theme Extensions:



The above will prevent display of both the Webmin logo and text.

To display your own logo in it’s place, go to Webmin > Webmin Configuration > Webmin Themes > Theme Logos:

Set “Logo for unauthenticated users” to yes as shown below.

Click the upload icon to upload your custom logo.

Your login page should now display your custom logo:


Note:  While possible to suppress the Webmin logo and text by editing the session_login.cgi file, you should not do so.  Any changes to this file will be over-written on any Webmin update.


Tomcat Module for Webmin

Yesterday, we released our Tomcat Module for Webmin

The module works like any other Webmin module and allows you to install and manage Apache Tomcat from within Webmin.

The module provides a GUI for you to Stop, Start, and Restart Tomcat, Deploy and Un-Deploy WAR files, as well as edit the main configuration files.

The easiest way to install it is to simply go to Webmin->Webmin Configuration->Webmin Modules

In the ‘From ftp or http URL’, enter:

Refresh the main page and you should see “Apache Tomcat” under “Servers” in Webmin menu.

Click the “Install Now” button to install Tomcat and Java.

Below are Some Screen Shots

Distro Notes


Tested on Ubuntu 12, 14, 15, and 16


Tested on CentOS 6×64 and 7×64

haveged helps Tomcat start much faster.


Tested on Debian 7 and 8


tomcat_env doesn’t work, because tomcat service(/usr/local/etc/rc.d/tomcat8) is not sourcing the setenv.sh file. Work around is to set tomcat7_java_opts= in service file.


Install tomcat packages manually and then install module, because Webmin doesn’t support pacman. Go to Existing Tomcat Installations below.


Install tomcat packages manually and then install module. Go to Existing Tomcat Installations below.

Installing on Existing Tomcat Installations

You can also use the module to manage an existing installation as well.

1. Install via Webmin->Webmin Configuration->Webmin Modules
2. Under Server > Apache Tomcat click on the configuration icon in the top left corner.
3. Update the configuration paths to your existing Tomcat paths.
4. You should now be able to use all functionality.
