***********************************************************************
*            Welcome to the Webmin setup script, version 1.520        *
***********************************************************************
Webmin is a web-based interface that allows Unix-like operating
systems and common Unix services to be easily administered.

Installing Webmin in /usr/local/lib/webmin ...

***********************************************************************
Webmin uses separate directories for configuration files and log files.
Unless you want to run multiple versions of Webmin at the same time
you can just accept the defaults.

Log file directory [/var/log/webmin]:

***********************************************************************
Webmin is written entirely in Perl. Please enter the full path to the
Perl 5 interpreter on your system.

Full path to perl (default /usr/bin/perl):

Testing Perl ...
Perl seems to be installed ok

***********************************************************************
cat: /etc/redhat-release: No such file or directory
Operating system name:    FreeBSD
Operating system version: 8.1

***********************************************************************
Webmin uses its own password protected web server to provide access
to the administration programs. The setup script needs to know :
 - What port to run the web server on. There must not be another
   web server already using this port.
 - The login name required to access the web server.
 - The password required to access the web server.
 - If the webserver should use SSL (if your system supports it).
 - Whether to start webmin at boot time.

Web server port (default 10000):
Login name (default admin):
Login password:
Password again:
Use SSL (y/n): y

After installing Webmin for the first time you should perform the following
steps as root:

* Configure Webmin by running /usr/local/lib/webmin/setup.sh

* Add webmin_enable="YES" to your /etc/rc.conf

* Start Webmin for the first time by running /usr/local/etc/rc.d/webmin start

The parameters requested by setup.sh may then be changed from within Webmin
itself.
