What is Webmin? Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix. Using any modern web browser, you can setup user accounts, Apache, DNS, file sharing and much more.
Webmin removes the need to manually edit Unix configuration files like /etc/passwd, and lets you manage a system from the console or remotely.
1- SSH to your WDMyCloud by a SSH Client
Tools needed: PuTTY (Windows) Terminal (Mac)
2- Backup your sources.list
cp /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.bak
3- Edit the /etc/apt/sources.list file on your system with the command :
4- Add the lines (just copy and paste these lines) :
deb http://download.webmin.com/download/repository sarge contrib deb http://webmin.mirror.somersettechsolutions.co.uk/repository sarge contrib
Note: Press CTRL+O then Press Enter (to save) then Press CTRL+X (to exit)
5- You should also fetch and install my GPG key with which the repository is signed, with the commands :
cd /root wget http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc apt-key add jcameron-key.asc
6- You will now be able to install with the commands :
apt-get update apt-get install webmin
Note:All dependencies should be resolved automatically.
7- Move back your original sources.list
mv -f /etc/apt/sources.list.bak /etc/apt/sources.list
The install will be done automatically to /usr/share/webmin, the administration username set to root and the password to your current root password. ( Username: root / Password: welc0me )
You should now be able to login to Webmin at the URL http://WDMyCloud:10000/. Or if accessing it remotely, replace WDMyCloud with your system’s IP address.
