Webmin is no longer supported in Debian and Ubuntu. It is not
compatible with the way that Ubuntu packages handle configuration
files, and is likely to cause unexpected issues with your system. Ebox
is a web-based GUI interface for administering a server. It is
designed to work with Ubuntu/Debian style configuration management.
See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/eBox
 Hopefully the above info helps. I strongly suggest using ebox.
