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

That’s it.
