I dug up an old server that is only running CLI, and can't seem to remember if Webmin was installed on the machine or not. I normally implement it on all machines, but it doesn't seem like it's working on this one.

Is there a quick command to check to see if it's installed or a directory that Webmin has to exist?

It should be in /usr/share/webmin

so try ls /usr/share/ or try whereis webmin

Alternately try sudo dpkg --get-selections , to list all packages.

Thank you for your work! – Cameron Aziz Jul 5 '12 at 15:49

The quickest way to see if its installed would be to launch a borwser and try loading up the web interface.
