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.

    Log into your Webmin server then click on the "Terminal" icon to launch the Terminal window.
