What is Virtualmin?

Virtualmin is an open-source cloud control and web hosting panel. It permits users to create multiple managed hosting environments without having to switch between different servers.

Furthermore, Virtualmin is secure and also offers access to the server through an ISL-encrypted HTTP. Today, we are going to learn how to install the Virtualmin Ubuntu 20.04 control panel under the guidance of our Support Team.

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?

  1. First, we will download the Virtualmin installation script using the following command:
    $ wget
  2. Then, we will set the fully qualified name of the server. For instance:
    $ sudo hostnamectl set-hostname
  3. Next, run the following command to make the script executable.
    $ chmod a+x
  4. After that, run the script and install Virtualmin and Webmin.
    $ sudo ./

    The 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.

  5. Then, offer access to Virtualmin via the firewall:
    $ sudo ufw allow 10000
  6. Finally, go to port 10000 on a fully qualified domain name on the server to access the Virtual Web interface. For instance:
