Modifying debian config through web-based interface


Hi All,

I am wanting some pointers/direction as to how I could run a administrative web service on our debian box to facilitate the management of the debian server (ie, creating iptable rules, modifying interface parameters, viewing dhcp leases).

I'm trying to replace an existing redhat server on our network which is performing as a gateway (unfortunately not meeting our needs) and this has a web-based management. It appears to be running 'asp' pages but these pages provide me no leads as to how it actually modifies the server's conf files.

Any comments/pointers most welcome.

Thanks
Anubis.

webmin

But really, editing text files in a command line window works better.

Hi All,

Thanks for those links.
Webmin looks like the one I'm looking for and I can modify it to suit exactly.

Thank again.
Anubks.

If you go with Webmin it has a repo that you can add to your sources.list.
# Webmin http://www.webmin.com/deb.html
# See http://bugs.debian.org/343897 about the removal from Debian
# Secure APT - wget http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc | apt-key add jcameron-key.asc
# deb http://download.webmin.com/download/repository sarge contrib

You may want to take a look at OpenPanel as well.
# OpenPanel.com | Download - http://www.openpanel.com/download_control/
# deb http://moonbase-beta.openpanel.com/pkg/debian4/i386 \openpanel main
# Replace the i386 with amd64 if you are running a 64 bits distro
# apt-get install openpanel
