How to Install Virtualmin on a VPS  Print this Article

Installing Virtualmin is simple, although you will require root shell access to your server or VPS. At the shell prompt, enter the commands below:

cd /root; wget

chmod +x; ./

Virtualmin should begin installing, with 1 or 2 options that you will need to select during the process. Once completed, you can access Virtualmin’s web interface at:

Username: root

Password: [Your server's root password.]

From the root account, you can create resellers, add websites, and configure your server.

The above instructions will result in a functioning Virtualmin VPS on:

  • CentOS 5, CentOS 6, CentOS 7 or equivalent RHEL
  • Debian 6, Debian 7
  • Ubuntu 12.04, Ubuntu 14.04 (and other versions)
  • Others (check compatibility)
