i have done everything to this point but dont know wear to find Webmin wear do i look thanks

First, you will have to download following source

Apache 2.0.49 source code for Linux: download from

PHP 4.3.5 source code for Linux: download from

PHP 4 manual: download from

Libiconv - GNU library for character encoding
conversion (supports, e.g., UTF-8, Unicode, CP1250,
CP1251, ISO-8859-1, ISO-8859-2, and many others):
basic description at: and download

MySQL: you can install a binary form of MySQL from
your preferred Linux distribution (just be cautious,
MDK 9.2/10 installs binary form of Postgress by
default, not MySQL).

Now we can compile and install all modules
(this assumes you have all *.tar.gz files in

cd /usr/local/src

Apache 2:

[code] tar -zxvf httpd-2.0.49.tar.gz
cd httpd-2.0.49
make install [/code


tar -zxvf libiconv-1.9.1.tar.gz
cd ../libiconv-1.9.1
make install

PHP 4 (as Apache 2 server module!):

tar -zxvf php-4.3.5.tar.gz
cd ../php-4.3.5
make install
cp php.ini-dist /usr/local/apache2/conf/php.ini

(add additional modules to ./configure, as needed,
e.g. mod_rewrite or SSL)


Now, run Webmin and create a new service here, so that
Apache 2 will start automatically with bootup:

(open URI https://localhost:10000/ in your browser,
select System, Bootup and Shutdown, Create new bootup
and shutdown) and fill-in the following service:

start: /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl start
stop: /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl stop

Gawd DO NOT do things this way.

It tends to "break" Mandrake and really screw things up.

Instead first follow these directions...

to set up your urpmi sources.

Then to install apache, merely type in

urpmi apache

For Webmin

urpmi webmin wizards usermin

That's it!

No screwing around with source files required.

From a console logged in as root type

service webmin start

Then go into your webbrowser and in the address bar type in


Exactly as I showed above.

That will display webmin.

The rest of the "wizards" now appear in the MCC.

You'll notice that you now have a bunch of new management entries available for servers and services.
