Install webmin on debian 7.6 (wheezy)

Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix. Using any browser that supports tables and forms (and Java for the File Manager module), you can setup user accounts, Apache, DNS, file sharing and so on.Webmin consists of a simple web server, and a number of CGI programs which directly update system files like /etc/inetd.conf and /etc/passwd. The web server and all CGI programs are written in Perl version 5, and use no non-standard Perl modules.

If you like to install and update Webmin via APT, edit the /etc/apt/sources.list file on your system

#vi /etc/apt/sources.list

Add the following lines

deb sarge contrib
deb sarge contrib

Save and exit the file

You should also fetch and install my GPG key with which the repository is signed, with the commands

#cd /root


#apt-key add jcameron-key.asc

Update the source list using the following command

#apt-get update

#apt-get install webmin

All dependencies should be resolved automatically.

    Have done all the usual stuff, like apt-get -f install etc etc
