Installing Webmin on CentOS 8

Webmin is a web-based system administration tool that allows you to manage various aspects of your Linux server through a web browser. It provides an intuitive interface for tasks like user management, filesystem management, package updates, and more.

Step 1: Update System Packages

Before installing Webmin, it's recommended to update the system packages to the latest version. Open a terminal and run the following command:

sudo dnf update

Step 2: Add Webmin Repository

Webmin is not available in the default CentOS 8 repositories, so we'll add the Webmin repository manually. Create a new repository file using your preferred text editor:

sudo nano /etc/yum.repos.d/webmin.repo

Then, add the following lines to the file:

[Webmin] name=Webmin Distribution Neutral mirrorlist=https://download.webmin.com/download/yum/mirrorlist enabled=1

Step 3: Import Webmin GPG Key

Import the GPG key used by the Webmin repository to verify package integrity. Run the following command in the terminal:

sudo rpm --import http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc

Step 4: Install Webmin

Now it's time to install Webmin. Run the following command to install the package:

sudo dnf install webmin

Step 5: Start Webmin Service

After the installation is complete, start the Webmin service using the following command:

sudo systemctl start webmin

You can also enable the service to start automatically on system boot by running:

sudo systemctl enable webmin

Step 6: Access Webmin

Webmin runs on port 10000 by default. Open your web browser and enter the following URL:


Replace "your_server_ip" with the actual IP address of your CentOS 8 server. You may see a security warning due to the self-signed SSL certificate used by Webmin. Proceed to the website to login.

That's it! You have successfully installed and accessed Webmin on your CentOS 8 server. You can now use the web interface to manage your server's configuration and settings.
