Installing the Solaris package

If you are using the Solaris package of webmin, first download the file from the downloads page, or with the command : wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/webmin-1.881.pkg.gz
if necessary, switch to the root user with: su root On Solaris 11, it has been reported that the root user be switched from a role account to a normal account in order for logins to work. The command for this is: rolemod -K type=normal root then run the following commands to uncompress and install it: gunzip webmin-1.881.pkg.gz
pkgadd -d webmin-1.881.pkg WSwebmin

The installation will be made to /opt/webmin, the administration username set to root and the password to your current root password. You should now be able to login to Webmin at the URL http://localhost:10000/ .

Upgrading the Solaris Package

Often Solaris is not configured by default to allow the upgrading of packages. To change this, edit the file /var/sadm/install/admin/default and change the line instance=unique to instance=overwrite. This will allow you to install a new Solaris package of Webmin over an older version.

Another method of upgrading is to use the following commands : /etc/webmin/stop
cp -r /etc/webmin /etc/webmin.old
pkgrm WSwebmin
mv /etc/webmin.old /etc/webmin
gunzip webmin-1.881.pkg.gz
pkgadd -d webmin-1.881.pkg WSwebmin

These will preserve the /etc/webmin directory when un-installing and re-installing, as the un-install process will normally delete it.
