I have tried Webmin as a browser based Management Interface and there is little difference between Webmin and Cockpit, I opted for Cockpit in the first instance, perhaps, because the installation is really simple.

So here is the Cockpit installation process

# yum -y install cockpit
# systemctl start cockpit
# systemctl enable cockpit.socket
# firewall-cmd ––add-service=cockpit ––permanent
# firewall-cmd ––reload

It really is an easy installation! From a network browser type
