Install Webmin and squid proxy on Ubuntu 10.04 lts server

Hi !

As i'm a newbie it is very much appreciate and helpful to me if u kindly let me know that if i install webmin and squid proxy on my postfix + dovecot (Actually this is an iRedmail package) server on ubuntu 10.04 lts then will it be any problem like conflict or need to change any postfix's configuration? kindly note that the primary and only role of this server is mail server right now and i dont have any secondary mail server. I just want to restrict website access restrictions based on various IP range. kindly advise.

Is your current postfix config working? Installing squid shouldn't interfere with postfix but with webmin you *may* break it. If you have a working postfix install and want to use webmin with squid, just disable the postfix plugin on webmin. That should prevent accidentally breaking postfix and still allow you to use webmin to manage squid.
