What is Usermin?
Usermin is a web interface that can be used by any user on a Unix system
to easily perform tasks like reading mail, setting up SSH or configuring
mail forwarding. It can be thought of as a simplified version of Webmin
designed for use by normal users rather than system administrators.
Like Webmin, Usermin consists of a simple web server, and a number of CGI
programs which directly update user config files like ~/.cshrc and
~/.forward. The web server and all CGI programs are written in
Perl version 5, and use only the non-standard Authen::PAM perl module.
What licence is Usermin distributed under?
Usermin is available free for commercial and personal use under the BSD
Because Usermin supports the concept of modules (like PhotoShop plugins),
anyone can develop and distribute their own modules for any purpose,
and distribute them under any licence (such as GPL, commercial or shareware).
