Staff Pick: Webmin

OS X comes with a variety of tools for setting up web sharing, handling user accounts, checking system resources, and providing other information about the system. The included utilities for these tasks are rather limited, and people trying to get more functionality and customization must use the command line to access and edit configuration files.

Webmin is a universal system administration package for Unix and Linux machines which also interfaces with OS X. This utility allows you to customize detailed information for users and groups, manage filesystems, edit bootup scripts and manage log files, change firewall rules, change Apache, DNS, and DHCP settings and more.

The utility is not pretty, and is accessed through a web browser so for some people it may be a little unfriendly; however, it can provide the tech-savvy user with easy access to otherwise hard to access settings details.

The latest version of Webmin (v1.48) can be downloaded from the developer's site: http://www.webmin.com
