Console Based Linux Boxes Made Easy using Webmin

Console based linux ... something that sounds quite techy to ppl .... and many ppl beleive only a total g33k can control such system ...

the advantages of using console based linux are:

  • requires low memory
  • a stupid GUI-centric windoze user wont mess around your system if he got physical access to it
  • much stable i think ... coz X11 application (the GUI apps) sumtime causes problem ..
  • and the best of all ... its a penguin on steroid ... fast even on old PCs ..

NEWFLASH: Console based linux are no longer a problem ... i've tumbled into a program called webmin ( http://www.webmin.com/ ) ... its a web-based GUI for linux ... it runs on HTTP protocol and by default on port 10000 ...

installing it on a RPM based system is a breeze ... juz download the RPM package, install it and ure up and running ..

webmin have quite a large modules set for configuring various configs of linux softwares ... from setting up server softwares such as Apache, MySQL, SSH server, DHCP, Bind DNS Server, to setting up system setting eg. User, Groups, Partition, Quotas, and Network configurations of a system ...

sounds interesting?? ... goto http://www.webmin.com/ to get it ....
