    Installing the RPM
    If you are using the RPM version of Webmin, first download the file from the downloads page , or run the command :
    wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/webmin-1.750-1.noarch.rpm
    then install optional dependencies with :
    yum -y install perl perl-Net-SSLeay openssl perl-IO-Tty
    and then run the command :
    rpm -U webmin-1.750-1.noarch.rpm
    The rest of the install will be done automatically to the directory /usr/libexec/webmin, the administration username set to root and the password to your current root password. You should now be able to login to Webmin at the URL http://localhost:10000/. Or if accessing it remotely, replace localhost with your system's IP address.

    If you want to connect from a remote server and your system has a firewall installed, seethis page for instructions on how to open up port 10000.

    You should also fetch and install my GPG key with which the packages are signed, with the commands :
    wget http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc
    rpm --import jcameron-key.asc
    You will now be able to install with the command :
    yum install webmin
    All dependencies should be resolved automatically
