Experienced Linux user probably knew about this tool...
Me no, and WOW !!! Allow me to see, understand, access, change my configuration easily...
To install Webmin, I recommend to add webmin repository.
Edit the /etc/apt/sources.list and add:
deb https://download.webmin.com/download/repository sarge contrib
Yes, Debian version "sarge", is quite old, but the repo is uptodate...
$ sudo wget https://download.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc | apt-key add jcameron-key.asc
Install needed packages and webmin:
# sudo apt install apt-transport-https # sudo apt update # apt install webmin
If you are using a pc with very limited resources it might be unnessecary to allways run webmin. Also when using the laptop on public net, it can bee good not to broadcast the service.
You can easy disable start of webmin and start it only when you need it.
To disable start of webmin, in terminal type
$ sudo systemctl disable webmin.service
To start Webmin, type:
$ sudo systemctl start webmin.service
service vice webmin start
To login in and configure webmin surf to https://localhost:10000.
