Installing Cockpit on Fedora after initial install

As everyone who reads my guides knows, I prefer to start my Fedora installs from a clean Minimal install using the NetInstall image.
Cockpit is a lightweight web interface that you can use to manage your Linux based servers. For me that means Fedora.
Like all core functionality, the installation and configuration is a snap.
Install Cockpit and its dependencies.
dnf -y install cockpit
Start the service and enable it to start on subsequent boot up.
systemctl start cockpit systemctl enable cockpit.socket
Allow connections in through the firewall
firewall-cmd --zone=public --add-service=cockpit --permanent firewall-cmd --reload
Navigate to your server ip on port 9090
Like most tools, it uses a self signed SSL certificate that will generate a warning to click through.
You should be greeted with the log in page.
