LXer: Webmin: can a graphical front end for system administration replace the command

Published at LXer:

This article will tell you how to install and use Webmin, a web user interface mainly used for administering servers. If you are not a sysadmin, donít run away: Webmin can also be used on a single desktop too. You may struggle to remember all the command line operations to manage, say, run levels or various daemons and prefer to do it the GUI way. One of the best reasons for using Webmin is to circumvent the sheer number of command line variations from distro to distro and the different locations for configuration files that you would otherwise require to memorize (manpages notwithstanding). Please keep in mind that it is still essential to know how to use basic Unix commands. Using Webmin without some system literacy is just asking for trouble. It should be used as an additional tool, not a replacementóbecause a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. On that basis, letís look at what Webmin modules can do for the desktop user.
