Installing Webmin on CentOS, RedHat, CloudLinux, Plesk
Installing Webmin on CentOS, RedHat, CloudLinux and can even install it over Plesk or cPanel server to easily manage CSF LFD, Perfect for newcomers running a dedicated server or virtual private server and need to easily manage your server and or manage CSF LFD.
If you would like to install CSF LFD Firewall and Login Intrusion Detection System over your Webmin installation or you can also manage CSF LFD using webmin over Plesk or cPanel but cPanel has it’s own module for cPanel so you don’t really need to install webmin over cPanel.
Afer you installed Webmin or Webmin over Plesk you can follow this tutorial below on how to Integrate Plesk and Webmin Installation in CentOS to easily manage CSF LFD from a user interface instead of doing so in Putty or Terminal. Not recommended, I recommend doing so manually using Putty or Terminal also this will cause you to learn. But if you do decide to install Webmin over Plesk make sure not to open port 10000 and inside csf.allow and csf.deny add your ip address if you have a dedicated ip address, or try dyndns.
Warning, When you copy and paste and if there exists a DASH – and you copy and paste in to Putty or Terminal in SSH you’ll need to delete the DASH and type in your own Dash.
IF INSTALLING WEBMIN OVER ANOTHER WEB HOSTING CONTROL PANEL I HIGHLY RECOMMEND NOT INSTALLING WEBMIN OVER Plesk, or any other control panel. UNLESS YOU’RE REALLY NEW TO MANAGING A PLESK SERVER and CSF LFD in Terminal or Putty,

UI integration for cPanel, DirectAdmin and Webmin, but we’ll be installing it on Parallels Plesk Panel which does not include a CSF LFD interface to manage CSF LFD in Webmin.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND NOT INSTALLING WEBMIN OVER PLESK UNLESS YOU’RE REALLY NEW TO MANAGING A PLESK SERVER, USE SSH INSTEAD.
How to Install Webmin Plesk CentOS
You can install webmin over your plesk installation, visit webmins website and once you install, login to your webmin control panel. https://yourIP_or_DomainName:10000 and then go to Webmin – Webmin Configuration – Webmin Modules – From Local File and then Browse to usually /etc/csf/csfwebmin.tgz then click install module. You will have to install csf first, if not webmin will install it for you. It will install under System in your webmin control panel, from here you can instantly increase your servers security levels and check log files, unblock, block ips and lots more.
As long as you don’t use webmin to edit or update anything if you’re running Plesk over Webmin you don’t have to worry about it, but you can use it to edit your configuration files pretty easily. Don’t do it unless you know what you’re doing.
You can view screen shots I just made with CSF / LFD using webmin module below.
Make sure you set your email address inside your configuration for you can always be updated on what’s going on your server. Here’s a screenshot of mine.
Tip: when using ssh terminal begin by typing for example nano /etc/csf/cs and keep hitting tab key. it will show you the available combinations for the remaining file names in that directory. This trick will save you a heck of a lot of time using terminal “SSH” shell, whatever you want to call it. Okay, well lets begin.
If using windows you can download Putty SSH Cient If you’re using Linux or Mac you can open Terminal. I prefer Terminator because you can open other terminal sessions inside the same window by right clicking the terminal and clicking split horizontally.
tip: when you try typing nano and if the command is not found type this:
Debian Based “Ubuntu” etc : apt-get install nano
RedHat Based “CentOS” etc : yum install nano
Add sudo before command if not ROOT. In Linux go to nano /etc/sudoers and add your other ssh login username to the sudo file and add root and your username inside nano /etc/group and add them both to the wheel grou and disable root ssh login from ssh nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config and than all you need to do is login to ssh using your username and use SUDO or you can su – root and when it asks for password type root password.
