Prerequisites to install Virtualmin on Ubuntu 20.04
Before we get started, let’s make sure we have the following prerequisites ready:
- A fully updates Ubuntu 20.04 server deployed at Vultr.
- A non-root user with sudo access.
How to install Virtualmin Ubuntu 20.04?
- First, we will download the Virtualmin installation script using the following command:
$ wget http://software.virtualmin.com/gpl/scripts/install.sh
- Then, we will set the fully qualified name of the server. For instance:
$ sudo hostnamectl set-hostname example.com
- Next, run the following command to make the script executable.
$ chmod a+x install.sh
- After that, run the script and install Virtualmin and Webmin.
$ sudo ./install.sh
The install.sh script offers the following options:
- –setup: Sets up the software and exits
- –uninstall: Removes all the Virtualmin packages.
- –force: Skips the confirmation message.
- –help: This message.
- –verbose: Verbose
- –hostname: Sets fully qualified hostname
- –bundle: Chooses either LAMP or LEMP bundle to install
- –minimal: Installs a smaller subset of packages for low-resource and ow-memory systems.
Our Support Team would like to point out that LEMP and Minimal modes are new in Virtualmin 6.0 and have had less actual testing compared to the default.
- Then, offer access to Virtualmin via the firewall:
$ sudo ufw allow 10000
- Finally, go to port 10000 on a fully qualified domain name on the server to access the Virtual Web interface. For instance:
