WARNING : Running Webmin under Apache is almost never necessary unless you are on a very low-memory system that is already running Apache. Doing so will make Webmin slower, break some features and force use of the old ugly UI.

Webmin comes with a very simple webserver called miniserv.pl that is capable of doing all that is necessary for Webmin to run. However, it is not as fast or memory efficient as a well-developed server such as Apache. To use Apache instead of miniserv.pl, follow these steps :

Create a new Apache virtual server with the document set to the directory where you installed Webmin, using a directive like DocumentRoot /usr/local/webmin.

Configure Apache to treat all files with the .cgi extension as CGI programs, with the AddHandler cgi-script .cgi directive.

Add index.cgi to the DirectoryIndex directive.

Webmin CGI programs have their config directory passed to them in the WEBMIN_CONFIG, WEBMIN_VAR and MINISERV_CONFIG environment variables. For Apache to do this, you need to add the directives



and then this code follows 

SetEnv WEBMIN_CONFIG /etc/webmin
SetEnv WEBMIN_VAR /var/webmin
SetEnv SERVER_ROOT /usr/local/webmin
SetEnv MINISERV_CONFIG /etc/webmin/miniserv.conf



and then they continue: 


Create a new <Directory> section for the root directory, like
<Directory /usr/local/webmin>


Add the directive Options ExecCGI to the new <Directory> section.


Password-protect the virtual server by putting directives like
AuthName Webmin
AuthType basic
AuthUserFile /etc/webmin/htusers
require valid-user

Inside the <Directory> section. The file /etc/webmin/htusers must contains users who match up with those in /etc/webmin/webmin.acl.

Make all the Webmin programs owned by root and setuid with the commands

chown -R root:root /usr/local/webmin
chmod -R 6755 /usr/local/webmin


Add the -U flag to the perl line in all the Webmin scripts. This can be easily done with the following command run from the webmin directory
find . -name "*.cgi" -o -name "*.pl" | perl perlpath.pl "/usr/bin/perl -U" -
This assumes that Perl is installed as /usr/bin/perl on your system.


well i guess that i should not use this old and ugly UI
