Looks like that package hasn't been maintained for a few years.  Check out webmin instead.

Yes you could do a few things to install it, but seriously it's not a wise choice to use an app to do what you want that hasn't been maintained since 2005.  It is no longer in the repo for a reason.

Webmin is the popular current choice for what you want, check it out.

I came across a copy of it while searching what you were talking about, but actually I typo'd that and meant 2007.  It's possible that there was some other version available 5.6, but either way -- if it was in the repo before, and not now, it's for good reason.

Good luck I hope webmin does what you want!

I should clarify I found a place that had several versions of it, and the latest was from 2007.  Educated guess says that was the latest revision, but as I mentioned there could have been some other updated version which you used on your old 5.6 install.
