mediatomb and webmin

now the ubuntuserver already recovery all data back;  now we went to another  requirement

remote access and media server.

mediatomb is our first prey.

to install mediatomb

sudo apt-get install mediatomb

you had to config username and password

sudo nano /etc/mediatomb/config.xml

you van use gedit as well
just change to
gksudo gedit /etc/mediatomb/config.xml

check on this line

<ui enabled="no" show-tooltips="yes">
<accounts enabled="no" session-timeout="30">

and change both to
<ui enabled="yes" show-tooltips="yes">
<accounts enabled="yes" session-timeout="30">

default user and password will be "mediatomb" you can change as you please in the line

and when you use it on the gui will be "http://server:49152" server meant your server name.

ok now next prey; webmin

webmin is the webadmin interface, you use that for remote admin on web, no need for r admin or any other admin

now we begin:

sudo apt-get install perl libnet-ssleay-perl openssl libauthen-pam-perl libpam-runtime libio-pty-perl apt-show-versions python

incase you don't know we need python install first if you don't have try one here

now we download the webmin package by


and install by

sudo dpkg -i webmin_1.580_all.deb

in many cases if this article is obsolete please check that the current version is 1.580 or not you can check the package re-release by

the address will be "http://server:10000"

do i mention that you need to install dpkg and gksudo?
