Installing Software on Your Joyent Compute Instance
There are two ways to install additional software on your instance: * Install it from a package * Compile it from source
Managing Your SmartOS Image
The administration portal is referred to as Virtualmin. Virtualmin is a server configuration tool with a web-based GUI that is pre-installed on Joyent instances provisioned from the SmartOS Plus image. It runs as its own process and includes its own web server. If you provisions a SmartOS instance through the SmartOS Plus image, you can use Virtualmin to setup your domains.
