Getting webmin to work on debian


I installed it and it works, but when I log in, there's NOTHING, just webmin config, but no actual system config. how can I get it to work properly? I had it running on red hat a while back and I remember having way more options. I'm mostly interested in user management, like creating/deleting users/groups and adding users to groups. So if there's an entirely different script for that it would do the job but if I can get webmin working it would be great too.

if I type apt-get install webmin-core (which I think is what I have to do) it does not work.

I get this:

Code:
borg:/etc/webmin# apt-get install webmin-core
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Package webmin-core is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package webmin-core has no installation candidate
borg:/etc/webmin#

I'm not a webmin expert, but doing "apt-cache search webmin" shows a number of modules that can be download. I'm guessing that the core only includes very basic functionality, and you should download some of these modules.

Oh nice, does that command search through the apt-get repository? Good to know for future reference.

When I run it on webmin I only get webmin itself though.

I have testing/unstable unfortunately, I only found out later on that I had downloaded the wrong disc, and there is simply too much configuration on this server to do a clean install so I hope this it can still work on the unstable version...

bump, can't seem to figure out how to update it. I think if I update it, I will be able to simply download the modules using the module utility that is built in, but I get an error that I need version 1.260 and I only have 1.210. So how can I upgrade it? I can't use apt-get install since it just says it's already installed, and won't let me just install the latest.
