Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration on Unix and Linux systems.
== Prerequisites ==
Webmin uses Perl, so
###i## emerge perl
== Installation ==
There are 2 methods of installing Webmin on your Funtoo server: emerging it from the Gentoo ebuild or manual installation. By default Webmin installs itself in {{f|/ect/webmin}}.
=== Ebuild ===
Gentoo has version 1.730 in the repository so installing that is fairly straightforward:
###i## emerge webmin
After installation Webmin needs to be started manually with the following command:
###i## sh ./etc/webmin/start
Next, start a browser and go to the Webmin page at https://localhost:10000 if you accepted all default settings. Go to the Webmin configuration pages in the menu and tell Webmin to start at boot. Make sure you save the new settings!
=== Manual Installation ===
Although the 1.730 version offered by the Gentoo ebuild will suffice for most users, it does keeps nagging about a newer version available. Manually installing from the source tar ball resolves that, at least until the next release. ;-) Webmin has documented the process on their own wiki:  http://doxfer.webmin.com/Webmin/Installation_-_the_old_fashioned_way
As above, start Webmin manually then ensure it does so from boot.
== Troubleshooting ==
Needs expansion.
