Webmin

 Webmin on HPUX 

Webmin has been successfully tested on HPUX 10.01, 10.10, 10.20, 10.30, 11.11, 11.22 and 11.23. However, the 10.x versions of HPUX do not come with Perl version 5, which is required by Webmin. Some version of HPUX include Perl version 4, but this will not work.

You can download Perl for HPUX in pre-compiled depot format for various OS releases from The HPUX Porting and Archive Center.

Once downloaded, gunzip the depot file and install using a command like

    swinstall -s perl-5.8.0-sd-11.00.depot perl
This will install perl under /opt/perl5. Because Webmin expects the Perl interpreter to be at /usr/local/bin/perl under HPUX, you may need to create a symlink with a command like
    ln -s /opt/perl5/bin/perl /usr/local/bin/perl

An alternative way to install Perl is to download the source from Once downloaded, gunzip and untar the file. Then run configure, make and make install. If everything goes well, the Perl interpreter will be placed at /usr/local/bin/perl.
