How to install Free webmin web hosting Control Panel centos

Cpanel is one of the best and great control panel which we are using for our main server and it’s not free. We are paying $25 to cpanel per month and it’s a single server licensed one. paying for one server is ok but the financial problem started when we bought 5 data servers to setup CDN for our client. Then we started searching for free opensource one alternative for Cpanel.

We found lot of controlpanels like vhcs , IspConfig , Kloxo HostInaBox and more. But we found WebMin is the best and easy web Hosting control panel for our work. Below are the instructions for installation

Installing webmin

First step login into your server consol using any ssh client. Download the rpm file from webmin download section

In the above output http://35542.server.local:10000/ will change depending on your server hostname 35542.server.local was our server hostname

Now you can login into webmin control panel by visiting server ip address or hostname of the server with port number 10000
