A little something about everything

internet marketing and website development made simple..

Step by Step install on Debian Linux on Microsoft Hyper-V Server

Create Generation 1 VHD and set to boot from  Debian~.iso

Start VHD and run Install

select options, 

  • personally I unselect the Debian desktop option and leave the rest default.

login as root or use sudo for the following commands.

now you'll need to add the webmin sources list by editing /etc/apt/sources.list by using nano, vi or another method.

vi /etc/apt/sources.list

then use i to edit the file and (esc) then :wq to write the file to memory.

once you've done that you can add the Webmin PGP key

wget http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc

then

apt-key add jcameron-key.asc

now update using 

apt update

I like to also install perl as it seems to prevent some issues

apt-get install perl libnet-ssleay-perl openssl libauthen-pam-perl libpam-runtime libio-pty-perl apt-show-versions python

and finally install webmin 

apt install webmin

continue (y)

Now you can login with https://(server-IP/domain):10000 

That's it, your done.
