Question webmin through a slash rather than a port


hi i know how to configure webmin so as that it will run on a port like domain.comort# but i need it to run through a folder so i will type domain.com/webmin if you know what i mean! i will be running it over ssl and password protecting the directory so security shouldnt be a problem

i will be very great full for any help

thanks berrance

Webmin must be run on a port.

If you want to use http://host/ as the URL, then you should run it on port 80, or use a port forwarder to forward port 80 to that URL.

Otherwise, you will have to configure your web server to redirect from the /webmin location to the port on which webmin is running. See your web-server documentation for how to do that.

thats the problem, i cant use a port due to a very crappy ISP closing almost every port exept 21, 53, 80, and the odd other one! all the ports that are curently open are been used for somthing els! i would change isp but where i live you can only go with one ISP for broadband, if you live in hull you will know what im going ona bout

thanks for the tip though it would have been very helpful if i had a good ISP lol

You can still configure your web server to redirect transparently to a local port (your ISP can't block connections from the local computer, so it will work because httpd will be fetching the webmin pages).

To do this with Apache, look at mod_proxy.
