Webmin is a web-based system configuration tool for OpenSolaris, Linux and other Unix-like systems. A language is a dynamic set of visual auditory or tactile Symbols of Communication and the elements used to manipulate them Computer software can be organized into categories based on common function type or field of use A Control panel in web hosting refers to the interface provided by the hosting company for the maintenance and monitoring of the hosted website A software license (or software licence in commonwealth usage is a Legal instrument governing the usage or redistribution of copyright protected software A website (alternatively web site or Web site, a back-construction from the Proper noun World Wide Web) is a collection of Web pages OpenSolaris is an Open source project created by Sun Microsystems to build a developer community around Solaris Operating System technology Linux (commonly pronounced ˈlɪnəks A Unix-like (sometimes shortened to *nix) Operating system is one that behaves in a manner similar to a Unix system while not necessarily conforming With it you can configure many operating system internals, such as users, disk quotas, services, configuration files etc. , as well as modify and control many OpenSource apps, such as the Apache HTTP Server, PHP, MySQL etc. Open source is a development methodology which offers practical accessibility to a product's source (goods and knowledge PHP is a computer Scripting language. Originally designed for producing Dynamic web pages it has evolved to include a Command line interface capability MySQL is a Relational database management system (RDBMS which has more than 11 million installations
Webmin is largely based on Perl, running as its own process and web server. NOTES FOR EDITORS "Perl" is not an acronym (read the "Name" section below The term web server can mean one of two things A Computer program that is responsible for accepting HTTP requests from web clients which are It defaults to TCP port 10000 for communicating, and can be configured to use SSL if OpenSSL is installed with additional required Perl Modules. The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP is one of the core protocols of the Internet Protocol Suite. Transport Layer Security ( TLS) and its predecessor Secure Sockets Layer ( SSL) are Cryptographic protocols that provide secure OpenSSL is an Open source implementation of the SSL and TLS protocols NOTES FOR EDITORS "Perl" is not an acronym (read the "Name" section below
It is built around modules, which have an interface to the configuration files and the Webmin server. Modular programming is a software design technique that increases the extent to which software is composed from separate parts called modules Interface generally refers to an abstraction that an entity provides of itself to the outside In Computing, configuration files, or config files', are used to configure the initial settings for some Computer programs They are used This makes it easy to add new functionality without much work. Due to Webmin's modular design, it would be possible for anyone who is interested to write plugins for desktop configuration.
Webmin also allows for controlling many machines through a single interface, or seamless login on other webmin hosts on the same subnet or LAN.
Webmin can be expanded by installing modules, which can be custom made. Aside from this, there are two other major projects that extend the functionality of webmin.
1. Usermin presents and controls a subset of the features available in Webmin, such as webmail and other user-level tasks, rather than administrator-level tasks. Usermin is a web-based user interface for Unix -like systems It is a simplified version of Webmin, can be used by any user on a Unix system and is distributed
2. Virtualmin, which is a domain hosting and web site control panel, which gives the ability to create and manage many domains and is available in both Open Source and commercial versions for a nominal price. (Compared to Plesk or cPanel, Virtualmin is much less expensive while still offering many of the same features). The Plesk software package is a commercial Web hosting automation program cPanel ( c ontrol Panel) is a graphical Web-based web-hosting control panel, designed to simplify administration of Websites cPanel
