Webmin fails to install Authen::OATH (Google / 2 factor authenticator)

If you have trouble installing two factor from within Webmin you need to first install Perl-CPAN.

I have come across this issue in both CentOS and Debian.

Open shell and issue the following commands:

yum -y install perl-CPAN

Now, install the following:

perl -MCPAN -e "install Test::Moose"
perl -MCPAN -e "install Types::Standard"
perl -MCPAN -e "install Moo"
perl -MCPAN -e "install Authen::OATH"

Now go ahead and install 2 factor auth within Webmin
