Webmin is one of the most commonly used Web Hosting control panels. This is an open source control panel which works on port 10000. Miniserv is the name of the web server application which handles the Webmin Web application. By default, Miniserv uses SSL for HTTP connections. This default setting causes some warning on the browser while accessing Webmin panel. The SSL is using for a secured connection to the server.
Here I’m explaining the steps to disable SSL from server backend (Command Line Interface). See the steps explained below:
Step 1: SSH to server as root user
# ssh root@IPaddress
Step 2: Open the configuration file with your favorite text editor. The configuration file for Miniserv is “/etc/webmin/miniserv.conf.”
[root@crybit #] vim /etc/webmin/miniserv.conf
Step 3: Change the value of “ssl” entry from 1 to 0
ssl=1 to enable ssl=0 to disable
Step 4: Restart Webmin service.
[root@crybit #] /etc/init.d/webmin restart
Step 5: Restart Apache
[root@crybit #] /etc/init.d/httpd restart
