    There's a lot of initscript but not have webmin. I could start webmin manually by "sudo /etc/webmin/start". Is there any step missed as I followed the step at here to set up webmin?

    Did you get any errors during webmin installation?

    Seems not. I just download ubuntu 7 server version & installed it into a reformated pc with LAMP, then following the step at here to install webmin. However, it could work by command "sudo /etc/webmin/start" but I try to install another program - tomcat & edit command with init. It's shown "command not found" too. Is any setting or step not complete when ubuntu is installed?

    I have te same problem

    I also just installed ubuntu and the webmin via apt-get.
    i can now start the webmin manually
    but there is no entry in init.d
    How can i set my system in such a way that it will start at boot.

    or can any point me to some documentation in how to set up webmin on ubuntu
    Many Regards

    You can place the command to start webmin in an init script (/etc/init.d/webmin), e.g. like this:
    Make the script executable:
    chmod 755 /etc/init.d/webmin
    and create the system startup links:
    update-rc.d webmin defaults
