    First you have to make sure you have perl installed:

    rpm -q perl

    should show something like: perl-5.8.0-88.3

    If not, then you need to download and get that installed. (See www.perl.com)

    Then you download the webmin file: webmin-1.210-1.noarch.rpm
    (you have not specified what OS you are on, but this should work for most distros) You can find this file at: http://www.webmin.com/download.html

    You can save this file in /root or /tmp or whereever. Then to install it, change directory to where you put the file and then:

    rpm -Uvh webmin-1.210-1.noarch.rpm

    This should install webmin. You should now be able to browse to:

    http://your.domain.name:10000

    Login name: root
    Password: same as your root password

    From there, it is a matter of whether your new server has any of the other required packages already installed. Webmin does not do a pre-install check to see if you have other stuff already (such as Apache, Spamassassin, Postfix, Qmail, etc, etc) they assume that whatever software you wish to be using is already installed.

    hi,
    I'm using CentOs3.4
    I have installed perl.
    And download webmin-1.210-1.noarch.rpm from webmin web site.
    After I did the command:
    # rpm -Uvh webmin-1.210-1.noarch.rpm

    I got this error:

    " webmin-1.210-1.noarch.rpm: not an rpm package ( or package manifest ) "

    So what should I do ?

    Thank you so much !

    How big was the rpm? Are you sure you got the actual rpm or did you get a text page. It sounds like you just downloaded the wrong thing.


    This is a direct link to an rpm which should install fine:
    http://internap.dl.sourceforge.net/s...0-1.noarch.rpm

    I think he may have gotten an html file and not the rpm from sourceforge. It is not that hard to do ify ou are not familiar with how they work the downloads.

    I've always just installed the source distrib, which is pretty straight forward as well. Just untar the package, and run the setup file. If you have any questions, just look at the INSTALL file.
