After update virtualmin thinks i'm Pro

Centos 7 - Fix repo

# nano /etc/yum.repos.d/virtualmin.repo

name=RHEL/CentOS $releasever - $basearch - Virtualmin

name=Virtualmin Distribution Neutral Packages

# yum clean all; yum update

I solved the repository problem, but after updating, the system remains in the PRO version.

Crap. I screwed up. I’m fixing it.

After the update it now says that I 'm PRO and i have been limited by the number of email accounts per hosting account and now it doesn’t allow me to see or set the quota for a mailbox. But what the fuck is this?

I fucked up. I’m sorry. I’m fixing it.

Joe, please let us know when you publish the correction, I need to resolve this soon.

You can fix it with:

# yum downgrade wbm-virtual-server-6.10.gpl-1
# service webmin restart

Same issue here

Joe, when you have a stable solution please report here. My clients are very angry.

Did you follow my instructions above? Did something go wrong with following those instructions?

No, only the license message disappeared, but the limitations continue to apply. What a mess!

I’m trying to help and sort it out as fast as I can. I made a mistake. You paid nothing, so, maybe have a little patience while I continue to volunteer my time to help.

I don’t know why limits would continue to apply. Are you sure the GPL version installed?

# rpm -q wbm-virtual-server

If you altered the license file (by running the change-license command), that would also make it think it’s Pro. Make sure /etc/virtualmin-license has GPL for both serial number and key.

And, is there a directory named /usr/libexec/webmin/virtual-server/pro? If so, delete it.


You don’t have to be aggressive. I have not altered anything. It is not my fault that you were wrong. I have some high availability servers even with Virtualmin. Yesterday I could view and edit mailboxes quotas, not today. Apparently the Quotas of the Filesystem were magically deactivated … I 'm checking now

Quotas are unrelated to this issue. Let’s keep the thread on topic. There is already a thread about quota issues…I’ve asked Jamie and Ilia to have a look, as I think maybe quota detection for XFS got broken in this new Webmin.

ahhh nice… very nice :expressionless:

Thanks a lot Joe, the solution fixed the problem.

Thanks for the update @fernandolcardoso. I’m still going to push a new package that will fix it automatically(ish, users will still have to actually update, but it won’t require manually downgrading and I see that enough people, over 2500!, installed the pro package before I fixed it in the repo to where it’ll be a lot of support requests if I don’t).


Thanks for the quick fix! It works perfectly!

@Joe Thank you for fixing this and hang in there. This happens to the best of us.

Happened to us also on multiple CentOS servers - all bumped to Pro and complaining about a problem with our license. Not actually having a Pro license and being stuck in this condition isn’t going to cause virtual server problems is it?

In other words, is it safe to wait for the auto-fix to show up?

Quotas for XFS are fixed here -
