Install webmin on CentOS 5

On CentOS 5.8 make sure that iptables is either turned on, or you have port 10000 (default) open to be accessed

If you do not have wget installed on your CentOS box, type:  yum install wget

from there download and install Webmin from sourceforge by using the following command:


once downloaded, run the following command to install:

rpm -i webmin-1.580-1.noarch.rpm

this should take a minute or so for it to install.

once installed successfully browse to https://ipaddress:10000, log in with your root username/password

*note* if you are installing on a higher version of CentOS like 6.2 do not use https, use normal httpd
