Has anyone installed Webmin with easyengine?


#1

Hi all,

I’m just wondering if anyone has installed a gui type interface management and monitoring with their easyengine setups, and if so how is it performing, is it slowing the server down much?

I know less is more, and it’s more secure to not have all of that extra stuff, I just want the simplicity of going to :10000 to see current cpu/ram usage and other stats.

Webmin is not compatible with easyengine because it will install Apache.

If you just want to monitor you server with a clean interface, you can use netdata. demo is available here.

I have written a script to install netdata with a single command : bash <(wget --no-check-certificate -O - https://git.virtubox.net/virtubox/Netdata/raw/master/deb-install.sh)

Awesome thank you @virtubox

Is there a performance difference when it’s installed? Is it something that you use on your installs?

I’m still learning “slowly” the command line, and in general the best of ways to setup a fast and secure wordpress server. I’ll get there eventually, but I really appreciate the help I’m getting here along the way :slight_smile:

No, netdata run with his own web server and doesn’t use more than few MB of memory. When the dashboard is not displayed, it will shutdown automatically his web server. You should not need to protect the access to the netdata dashboard, it only display live time metrics without any important informations about your server

@virtubox what a pity, you seem to have removed the source?

You can install netdata with the following command :

bash <(curl -Ss https://my-netdata.io/kickstart-static64.sh) all

Thanks - a nice panel but probably not what I am looking for…I’d need something like a lightweight webmin or Plesk panel without apache2 where I can manage ftp user, letsencrypt certificates (including subdomains and domain aliases), databases (phpmyadmin has this nasty composer update problem I cannot fix) etc…

You can replace apache by Nginx with Virtualmin (the web hosting version of webmin) : https://www.virtualmin.com/documentation/web/nginx

But it will probably require more time to find how to use Virtualmin, than to do it manually.

I use Webmin on an number of my easy engine servers (Vultr and DO) - it’s quick and light and with good functionality. It’s improved a lot over the years.

I just followed the DO tutorial to install Webmin under nginx
