First of all i just want to say thanks to the devs for Webmin\Virtualmin. I come from Cpanel and there has been an adjustment period, but as i get my head around all the features, it shows how much work has gone into it all.
Saying that, I am down to the last few issues i just cant figure out.
- Is there anyway i can create a virtual server (user=admin virtual server= example.com), use that virtualmin account (admin account) to create additional users (bob and mary) that can then ONLY create sub servers on that virtual server (bob.example.com, mary.example.com etc).
Essentially I want to allow friends to be able to use my VPS and domain to create sub servers and let them create sites, but only as sub servers to the main domian. From my understanding that is the advantage of sub servers and webmin as they can essentially be treated as their own virtual servers?
When I create a Virtual server and log in as that account in webmin, when I create a sub server there is the option for “IP address and forwarding”. Within that there is an option for “Proxy website to URL”. I have no idea what it does, but more so, is there a way to hide that option as all virtual servers and sub servers are run through the same IP
I have read through a bunch of tutorials (http://www.virtualmin.com/documentation/dns/slave-configuration) and got the master and slave setup through webmin\bind. though I have had a lot of trouble in getting them to work well and google has shown there are a lot of people with the same problem, but a lack of solutions out there:(
a) The virtual servers get passed onto the slave, but the records do not. When i test the transfer it fails, when i look in logs it says refused, when i look at last transfer, it says never. Have i missed a step somewhere or is this a known issue?
b)If the master VPS has ns1 and ns2 nameservers running, do i just create ns3 and ns4 on the slave after i have the above problem working and then add the ns3 and ns4 into the server template creation so the ns records are created?
Sorry about multiple questions but i wasnt sure whether you prefer multiple threads or not, if so happy to edit and post multiple threads,.
