Webmin rocks
Authored by: tomsinclair on Dec 13, '00 09:59:05AM

I use Webmin to manage Linux servers both at home and at work (I teach computer
networking at a small technical college). There are a couple of seriously cool things about
webmin that weren't mentioned:

- You can delegate administrator tasks without giving out an administrator password.
- You can create your own Webmin modules using perl, which is included with OS X. (See
the Webmin page http://www.webmin.com/webmin for more instructions on this.

All in all, webmin would be a great way to add a gui to just about all of the tasks that are now
done at the terminal prompt. In addition, it can allow you to remotely administer your OS X
machine (or multiple OS X machines along with UNIX/Linux machines) through a simple
Web browser.

So, not for the faint of heart, but worth checking into if you're interested in digging into
administration.

The uninstall script is somewhere like /etc/webmin/uninstall.sh

If you can't locate it for some reason, just delete the webmin folder from the directory etc, as well as the webmin folder itself (wherever is was when you first installed it.)
