Here’s another simple to follow guide. Just copy and paste the lines in the code boxes and you will have Webmin running in no time.

Warning: This type of modification is done at your own risk and will void the warranty of the drive.

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)
SSH Enabled
Username: root
Password: welc0me

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 :

nano /etc/apt/sources.list

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.

Good Luck
