By default, Webmin will be installed in port 10000 of the Linux server.

4. You can now administrate your server easily without typing a lot of Linux commands. The next step now is to add a Webmin account for admin with less power and to add a admin user to SSH into the server. Actually the documentation has a lot of information showing how to use Webmin to administrate the Linux server.
