Virtualmin is the One of the favorite Web control Panel Of Linux Professionals, We easily manage and configure the server. It allows a user to configure and administer a server without the need to log in on the command line using a web interface.
Virtualmin is a Webmin module for managing multiple virtual hosts through a single interface, like Plesk or Cpanel. It supports the creation and management of Apache virtual hosts, BIND DNS domains, MySQL databases, and mailboxes and aliases with Sendmail or Postfix . It makes use of the existing Webmin modules for these servers, and so should work with any existing system configuration, rather than needing it’s own mail server, web server and so on.
Two versions of Virtualmin exist:
Virtualmin GPL wichich is a free and the open source version.
This is the freely downloadable version, licensed under the GPL. It is under active development, but does not contain all of the features of the Pro version.
Virtualmin Pro wichich is a the commercail version of Virtualmin.
This is the commerical version that you have to pay for. It includes numerous features not in the GPL version (like script installers, resellers, HTML editor, an improved UI, mobile access, spam and virus filtering). Customers also get support, a simplified complete installation script and access to a repository of updated packages. To learn more, visit the Virtualmin Pro website.

Step 2: Installing Virtualmin package
All packages will be downloading from internet, so your internet line should not be disconnect during installation. It is better to have good bandwidth, because virtualmin will download all dependencies and necessary packages from the internet.
Login to your new server as root, either via ssh or directly on the console, and run the following commands:
# /bin/sh install.sh
Checking for Perl
found Perl at /usr/bin/perl
Welcome to the Virtualmin GPL installer, version 1.1.2
The installation is quite stable and functional when run on a freshly
installed supported Operating System.
If you have existing websites, email users, or if you manually installed
Virtualmin via a Webmin ‘wbm’ module, you are likely to run into problems.
Please read the Virtualmin Administrators Guide before proceeding if
your system is not a freshly installed and supported OS.
This script is not intended to update your system! It should only be
used to perform your initial Virtualmin installation. If you have previously
run the Virtualmin installer, you can perform upgrades and updates from within
Virtualmin itself, or using your system’s package manager. Once Virtualmin is
installed, you never need to run this script again.
The systems currently supported by install.sh are:
CentOS/RHEL/Scientific Linux 7 on x86_64
CentOS and RHEL 5-6 on i386 and x86_64
Scientific Linux 6 on i386 and x86_64
Debian 6, 7, and 8 on i386 and amd64
Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, 12.04 LTS, and 14.04 LTS on i386 and amd64
Amazon Linux 2012.03 on i386 and x86_64
FreeBSD 7.0 and 8 on i386 and amd64
If your OS is not listed above, this script will fail. More details
