Webmin is too heavy for my old Raspberry Pi B. Does anyone know of a similar HTML-based sysadmin tool that is less resource-hungry? Preferably open source.

What about Cockpit.

There are not that many options as Webmin has. And some plugins you might have to build yourself (good luck). It may run on best on Red Hat based Linuxes, not Debian based systems. Not sure if it will run on an old Raspberry Pi B.

However, the basic installation will give you a terminal in the browser, which is worth a lot.
