Port 10000 is blocked where I am most of the time (which makes managing my server impossible), is there a way to make virtualmin accessible on port 80?
EDIT: I would like it if I could still access it on port 10000 normally, just when I cant access that port because of proxies
Look at the “Webmin In A Virtual Host Via A Proxy” section, that’s worked for me before when I’m in college, as they run everything through a http proxy, so only ports 80 and 443 are allowed
thanks for that link, I will look into it
Just make sure to not do any configuration work then that requires a shutdown or possibly restart of Apache, since that would cut you off from accessing Webmin.
To me personally it feels a little “off” to run a control panel through a software that is being configured by that very control panel. So, if you don’t need HTTPS, it might be better to turn that off in Apache and configure Webmin to use port 443 (which you can do in addition to port 10000). Or find another unused port that your firewall does not block.
If you can SSH, just use a SSH tunnel to get to the server, it would make configuration much easier, and be secure as well.
Its what I use when I am at places like Panera or Starbucks.
