For many users who are accustomed to using Windows, configuring a Linux server using the command line may feel difficult to adapt to when it comes to Linux. Today, we will explain that the Linux graphical Configuration tool-webmin, through this tool, users can easily use the Web interface to face the Linux server configuration. Let's look specifically at the deployment of this tool: 1. First of all, we need to install the software, the installation process is very simple, only need four parts to complete. Webmin requires support for the following software:perl-5.8.8-18.el5 (General system comes with) openssl-0.9.8k.tar.tar (: http://www.openssl.org) net_ ssleay.pm-1.30.tar.gz (: http://search.cpan.org/dist/Net_SSLeay.pm) webmin-1.480-1.noarch.rpm (: http:/ /www.webmin.com/download.html) 1) Perl software general system is installed by default, we can view: with the following command if the system does not install automatically, you can use the command:rpm -ivh perl-5.8.8.-18.el5.i386.rpm for installation. 2) Install openssl# tar zxvf openssl-0.9.8k.tar.tar# cd openssl-0.9.8#./config# make# make INSTALL3) Installation net_ssl# tar zxvf net_ssleay.pm-1.30.tar.gz# cd net_ssleay.pm-1.30# perl makefile.pl# make install4) Install webmin# rpm -ivh webmin-1.480-1.noarch.rpmok,webmin installation is complete. 2. Webmain configuration After the installation is complete Webmin, you can use the https://hostname (or IP address): 10000 to open the management interface, such as: in the Login dialog box with the root user login, you can enter the Webmin management interface, On the home page you can see some system information, such as: if notAccustomed to use the English interface, you can also choose the Chinese interface, click on the left panel "Webmin-change language and theme", such as: for ease of viewing, I set the Webmin UI style to "original Webmin style", So all the interfaces are graphical. Webmin main Menu has webmin management, system, server, network, hardware, cluster, several other items, such as: Among them, Webmin key is the management, configuration of Webmin. "System" key is a few configuration of Linux system, configurable content reference: "Server" item is a Linux installed server configuration, including most of the server, specific projects such as the: "network" option is related to the network services, Configuration of the application, configurable items such as the following: "Hardware" options are some configuration of the Linux server hardware, including disk partitioning, printers, etc., such as the: "cluster" option, not to mention, specifically to configure the Linux Cluster service, such as: "other" Options can also be configured for PHP, file management, SSH, and so on, such as: webmin's main configuration items on these, let's take a look at the configuration of Webmin, for example, we have previously configured the DNS server, now we take a look at the use of graphical configuration, For example, the graphical configuration basically covers everything we need to configure. use Webmin to configure a lot of intuitive, after all, is a graphical interface, however, I personally think, as a network administrator, or should learn to use the command line to operate the Linux server. If you are familiar with the command line, you will also find it easy to use the command line.
