Monitoring a computer is always necessary to verify its operation. Especially if we are talking about a computer connected to an internal network. So, installing a tool with some computer tasks is always a good idea. Therefore, in this post I will show you how to install Webmin on Debian 10.

Webmin is a web-based interface for managing UNIX systems. It has a new web interface where you can modify and manage several things on the computer. For example, user accounts, UNIX groups, DNS and others.

In addition, you will have no license problems with Webmin because it is released under the GPL3 license, which guarantees that you can use it, modify it and install it as you want.

So, let’s install Webmin on Debian 10.

Before starting the installation, it is necessary to update the system completely.

So open a terminal session and run the following:
