How to Install Webmin on CentOS 7 Linux

Webmin is a free hosting control panel with an easy installation. It takes only 5 to 10 minutes to install and configuration is simple.

Requirements: Fresh install of CentOS 7 on your VPS/Server.

How to Install Webmin

Step 1: First you will need to login into your root account via SSH.

Then enter these 4 commands:

yum install wget -y


yum -y install perl perl-Net-SSLeay openssl perl-IO-Tty perl-Encode-Detect

rpm -U webmin-1.860-1.noarch.rpm

Installation can take a few minutes and will depend on your server speed. Once it is complete, you will see a message with your Webmin admin URL.


Step 2: Next, open Webmin in a browser type http://ip-address here:1000


On CentOS 7, if the URL doesn’t work, it means that you need to open port 10000. You can do this by running this command:

firewall-cmd --zone=public --add-port=10000/tcp --permanent

firewall-cmd --reload


The Webmin dashboard will open.
