After I saw quite some interest on installing Webmin on Ubuntu 9.04 and 9.10, I decided to go ahead and do the same for 10.04 and 10.10. I also strongly believe Ubuntu is doing wrong by not including Webmin into their repository Webmin is doing a mistake by using a deprecated library and not leave everybody to take benefit of their great product.
For those unfamiliar with Webmin, it is a web interface for configuring your linux box without X server.


LATER EDIT: As Joe Cooper from Virtualmin (the guys making webmin) said in the comments, there’s no need anymore for libmd5-perl for webmin starting with 1.520. I tested and it’s true, now the whole installation can be done in 3 simple steps. Thanks Joe, now’s much better!

I am a big fan of Ubuntu Server. It’s exactly what you need for a server, no fancy UI, just services.
Dealing with all the text configuration files can be a time consuming task and there is something that can help a lot. It’s called Webmin and it is a web interface for configuring your linux box.
Webmin demo

You need to install first some perl-related libraries required by webmin:

sudo apt-get install perl libnet-ssleay-perl openssl libauthen-pam-perl libpam-runtime libio-pty-perl libmd5-perl
