Access Virtualmin API Remotely Without Using Root Account

It’s not a good idea to Access Virtualmin API Remotely using root account.

Therefore you should create a new user solely for Virtualmin API remote access.

Webmin-> Webmin Users -> Create a new privileged user

  • Set the username and password

Create Virtualmin API user

  •  Tick the Virtualmin Virtual Server under Servers section, then click ‘Create’ button


Virtualmin API user permission


Now you can access Virtualmin API remotely using above username and password instead of root account.
