  1. Hello,

    All contemporary systems (i.e. RHEL/Fedora/CentOS Stream/Alma/Rocky/Oracle 7-9, Debian 9-11, Ubuntu 18-22, openSUSE) should use `systemctl start webmin` command rather than `service start webmin`. Besides, all contemporary systems won’t even have `/etc/init.d/webmin` script at all, with latest Webmin versions, as we simply removed it.

    Please be kind prioritizing `systemctl` in your tutorial. Moreover, it’s also possible to use universal `/etc/webmin/start` or `/etc/webmin/restart` commands.
