Is there any reason not to install Webmin on a VPS running cPanel/WHM? I understand that changes I make via Webmin could potentially impact cPanel/WHM, but if I just wanted to install Webmin so I could see more of the VPS config in a web GUI, would the actual installation of Webmin cause any issues?

The VPS is running CentOS 64-bit if that helps. Thanks.

Hello :)

cPanel is not designed to work in combination with other control panels such as Webmin. I do not recommend installing it on a cPanel server.

Thank you.

I thought that Webmin merely gave you GUI access to things that could be done via command line - in that case, what would be the harm in installing it as long as I'm careful what I do with it?

I do this all the time without issue. Just don't use webmin to edit things normally handled by Chanel/whm.

Thanks for the confirmation smoge - much appreciated! I mostly plan to use Webmin for just checking on stuff, but just to be on the safe side, any specific areas I should stay away from making changes with Webmin?

Hello,

There will be rpm conflicts as well which might result in non-functioning of both panels so having another panel with cPanel is not recommended.
