Installing Webmin Using YUM

I like to use webmin to administrate some aspects of my Linux servers but, for some strange reason, I’m not big on using an RPM to install or update it – I prefer YUM. Here’s how.
Install the GPG key for webmin:
wget http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc
rpm --import jcameron-key.asc

Create the repo file for webmin in /etc/yum.repos.d:
vim /etc/yum.repos.d/webmin.repo
[Webmin]
name=Webmin Distribution Neutral
#baseurl=http://download.webmin.com/download/yum
mirrorlist=http://download.webmin.com/download/yum/mirrorlist
enabled=1

Now you are ready to install webmin using YUM:
yum clean all
yum -y install webmin perl-Data-Dumper
