Install Webmin on Raspberry Pi via Apt-Get

Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Linux boxes. Using any modern web browser, you can setup user accounts, Apache, DNS, file sharing and much more. It is good idea also setup Webmin on your Raspberry Pibox so it enable you to easy manage your Raspberry Pi box over browser of your choice.

Lets install the Webmin on Raspberry Pi – I am running Rasbian Distro on my Raspberry Pi box:

  • First we have to add these two Webmin repositories
sudo vi /etc/apt/sources.list
# Add these two lines
deb sarge contrib
deb sarge contrib
  • Now we have to download and install key
sudo wget
sudo apt-key add jcameron-key.asc
  • This should be all you will need, now you have to just refresh system and then you can install webmin from command line with apt-get
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install webmin

Once all is set and refreshed with the apt-get command you can install webmin on yourRaspberry Pibox. At the end of installation and configuration you should see a link that you will use to connect to your Raspberry Pi box – usually https://IP-ADDRESS:10000 and same login and password you are using to login to RaspBerry Pi.

  1. I run into a problem trying to install Webmin on Pi.
    Command ” sudo apt-get add jcameron-key.asc ” was invalid and did not add the key. I found the solution though: It should be “sudo apt-key add jcameron-key.asc”.
