Managing Headless Servers using Webmin (a browser based system administration tool)
Many Linux users maintain one or two systems often using the distributions own style of administration gui tools. These provide easy to follow, rather intuitive interfaces for particular flavors of linux. But what if one manages multiple systems of different flavors of Linux? And, what if the system doesn't even support X (i.e.: no graphical displays)? Enter Webmin, an open source system management tool available from webmin.com. Using a standardized browser based interface connecting to your server(s) over an IP network, Webmin will present consistent configuration and manage interfaces across all linux distros. Learn how to easily install, utilize, customize and perform many system admin tasks with this amazingly capable systems tool.
