Install Webmin Using the YUM repository.

You can follow the below instructions to install Webmin using Yum Repository.

 If you like to install and update Webmin via RPM, create the /etc/yum.repos.d/webmin.repo file containing :

name=Webmin Distribution Neutral

You should also fetch and install my GPG key with which the packages are signed, with the commands :


rpm --import jcameron-key.asc

You will now be able to install with the command :

yum install webmin

All dependencies should be resolved automatically.


[root@ftp ~]# rpm --import

error: import read failed(0)

1. Open up in your browser and copy  the output

2. Login to your server and go to a temp location for me it was /tmp

3. Create a new file (I use nano, but use whatever you normally do, pico, vi etc)

$ nano public.gpg.key

and then paste in the key you copied form the browser. Save the file and exit.

4. From the CLI then enter

$ rpm --import public.gpg.key

5. Voila GPG key installed and you can now use yum to install webmin!

Done !
