I'm now adding the steps to install Webmin 1.580 on Ubuntu 12.04. Please ensure that you have OpenSSL installed, otherwise you are not going to be able to run Webmin over TLS. To do that just run openssl version in your terminal, you should get an output similar to the following, if you have it installed:
OpenSSL 1.0.1 14 Mar 2012

There is no specialized Ubuntu version, so we need to install the Debian version and make manual changes. The steps are:

  • First, we need to add the official Webmin repository to our list of software packages by using the following: Add the following line at the end of /etc/apt/sources.list file:
    deb http://download.webmin.com/download/repository sarge contrib
    You can use, sudo vi /etc/apt/sources.list for the above.
  • Now we need to add Webmin author Jamie Cameron’s public key to our keyring. Do this from your home directory:
    wget http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc When the jcameron-key.asc file has completed its download, do the following:
    sudo apt-key add ~/jcameron-key.asc
  • Now we can install Webmin from the repo we added:
    • Update your repository index:
      sudo apt-get update
    • Now install webmin using:
      sudo apt-get install webmin

You should now be able to access webmin at https://<hostname>:10000/ as root with your root password, or as any user who can use sudo to run commands as root.
