BCS Webmin Managing Server

I have used Webmin for managing headless LAMP servers. Since by definition servers are normally headless. By headless we mean there is no display or crt available to the server.

Administration was command line only. Webmin provides a web based graphical user environment for managing servers.

Webmin is a program that simplifies the process of managing a Linux or Unix system. Normally you need to manually edit configuration files and run commands to create accounts, set up a web server or manage email forwarding. Webmin lets you perform these tasks through an easy to use web interface, and automatically updates all of the required configuration files for you. This makes the job of administering your system much easier.

Issue the following command in the event after installation Webmin does not become active.

iptables -I INPUT 1 -p tcp --dport 10000 -j ACCEPT

The above command should make the web based environment become active.
