Raspbian (Jessie) | Debian install webmin

Open your terminal emulator or SSH session:

1.) sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade -y

2.) sudo apt-get install libnet-ssleay-perl libauthen-pam-perl libio-pty-perl apt-show-versions

3.) cd ~/Desktop/

Note:  You can download the package to any directory that you want however, I’m dropping it onto the Desktop so that I get a constant reminder to delete it when I see it.  **I like clean desktops!**

4.) wget https://sourceforge.net/projects/webadmin/files/webmin/1.810/webmin_1.810_all.deb

5.) sudo dpkg -i webmin_1.810_all.deb

6.) connect your browser to webmin by:  https://my-pi-ip:10000

Linux find & stop processes | syslog test logger

Restart

In order to accept a new configuration, you will need to restart your syslog server:

/etc/init.d/syslog stop
/etc/init.d/syslog start

Another way to do this is to find the syslog process and send a HUP signal to it:

ps -ax |grep syslog
6743 ??   0:00.40 /usr/sbin/syslogd
kill -HUP 6743

Testing syslog

To test if syslog has been set up correctly you can log an event to syslog using the “logger“` command:

logger -t test "Here's an example log entry"

Next check your logs configured in Logentries to see if any events have been recorded.
