Add user to Webmin through command line of terminal.

They have to be a system user.

vim /etc/webmin/miniserv.users

looks like:


x = uses the users system password
hashedpassword = the actual password for non-system user. (and no, I haven’t worked out how to calculate them)
Now you need to specify what they can access.

vim /etc/webmin/webmin.acl (if it doesn't exist, create it.)
root: acl at autorpm backup bsdexports burner cdbackup cpan cron custom dfsadmin
dnsadmin download fdisk file firewall format fsdump hpuxexports inetd init inittab
lilo logviewer man mount net nettools pam passwd proc quota raid rinetd servers
sgiexports shell shorewall software status syslog time useradmin usermin webmin
webminlog xinetd updown

ops: backup init cdbackup burner passwd shell custom quota mount download
xinetd file fsdump lilo firewall raid logviewer net nettools pam fdisk cpan proc at
cron shorewall software inittab man syslog time status updown usermin useradmin
webminlog webmin servers acl rinetd

Keep each user part on one line (no returns), single-spaced. Most of the modules are obvious, I gave ops complete access. Restart webmin for the new user(s) to take effect.
