Of course, xinetd is available for CentOS/RHEL 6 (just run yum install
xinetd ... there is now
available, if I am not mistaken.

There is also something about webmin on CentOS wiki page

change of the initd system happened only in RHEL-7 when we switched to

Concerning xinetd ... the most common problem with it is something wrong
with tcp_wrappers and /etc/hosts.{allow,deny} (see hosts_access(5) for
more information on those files). Are you sure you have them setup

Certainly it cannot do it in RHEL 6 (see above). Meanwhile upstart is
more or less and with the whole world switching to systemd (please,
don't start systemd flame-war here, please, it is not the point, it
doesn't matter what you, me, or anybody else thinks about systemd), I
think upstart is completely doomed. If the Wikipedia page is right, it
is going to be used only in Chrome OS. Doing anything to accommodate
upstart is pure waste of time, I believe.

Nothing against webmin, I just have no clue about it myself (the best
configuration tool available has two letter in its name, in my opinion,
... one is 'v', the other one 'i' ;)).
