If you see the following note at the end of the initial step above, we need to install some additional packages and further configure Webmin.

==> Please write your own PKGBUILDS for 3rd party modules and additional themes.
==> To make webmin start at boot time, add webmin to rc.conf daemons
==> Point your web browser to http://localhost:10000 to use webmin.
==> The access is restricted to localhost, if you want to connect from other locations
==> change /etc/webmin/miniserv.conf to something like that: allow= <your-ip>
