Usermin is a web-based user interface for Unix-like systems. It is a simplified version of Webmin that is distributed under the BSD licence and can be used by any user on a Unix system. Along with a simple web server, Usermin consists of CGI programs in Perl that directly updates configuration files. The package is written in Perl 5 and uses the Authen::PAM Perl module. It runs by default on port 20000.

Usermin is designed for normal users for the simple tasks of:

  • Reading mail.
  • Setting up SSH.
  • Configuring mail forwarding.

Notable people[edit]

  • John Smith: Idea for Usermin and sponsorship for its development.
