Install Webmin on Fedora 22 Using DNF

You can install Webmin by either downloading and installing the RPM directly or you can add Webmin to your repo list then use DNF to install Webmin; I prefer the latter method.

First, make sure your Fedora installation has the prerequisite dependencies installed. These dependencies are usually resolved and installed by DNF but I like to install them beforehand just to be safe. I also install vim and wget at the same time for convenience.

dnf -y install vim wget perl perl-Net-SSLeay openssl perl-IO-Tty

Second, create a repo file for Webmin:

vim /etc/yum.repos.d/Webmin.repo

Press the “I” key then copy and paste the following in your Webmin.repo file:

[Webmin]
name=Webmin Distribution Neutral
#baseurl=http://download.webmin.com/download/yum
mirrorlist=http://download.webmin.com/download/yum/mirrorlist
enabled=1

Save this file by pressing “Esc”, then “:”, then “x” (this will save your changes and exit VIM), then press “Enter”.

Third, install the Webmin GPG key:

rpm --import http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc

Fourth and finally, install Webmin:

dnf -y install webmin

You should now be able to open your favorite browser and browse to https://servername:10000/
