Webmin is a Linux operating system designed for online servers. Many people use these servers for websites and online retail stores. PHP is a programming language used to create web-based applications. If you would like to install PHP onto your Webmin server, you can do so with just a few commands on the server's Terminal window. The Terminal window is the Linux equivalent to Microsoft's "Command Prompt" and gives users the ability to input server commands.
