Webmin is installed by default on the dedicated servers; however it is not running by default. Webmin is an optional service that is not essential for the server to run. It is a tool that helps in certain administration tasks such as DNS and assigning additional IP addresses. If you would like to use Webmin you must start the service. In order to start the Webmin service you will need to issue the following command:

[root@server ~]# service webmin start

You can check to make sure that Webmin is running by issuing the following command:

[root@DedI1 ~]# service webmin status
Webmin (pid 1867) is running
[root@DedI1 ~]#

If you wish to configure your server to ensure that the Webmin service is started at boot time you can issue the following command:

[root@DedI1 ~]# chkconfig --level 3 webmin on

To verify that Webmin will start at boot, issue the following command:

[root@DedI1 ~]# chkconfig --list webmin
webmin 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:on 4:off 5:off 6:off
[root@DedI1 ~]#

In the previous listing, Webmin is listed to start in run level 3, which is the default run level that the dedicated servers boot into.
