Since I began using FreeBSD 4.x, I quickly learned of Webmin, a web-based server administration tool, which allows administrators to manage everything from: Mysql, Apache, Sendmail, system processes, networking and much more. One of the coolest features of Webmin is it’s modular structure. Modules can easily be downloaded and installed to fit your specific server needs. In this quick tutorial you will learn how to install and use Webmin.

Even though Webmin will not fully replace SSH or physical access to your server. Webmin will allow you as the admin to manage and perform the most common server tasks easily via a web browser. Happy Webmin-ing!
