Cannot access Webmin/Virtualmin admin panel

I had to take a long break from my little project and haven’t logged in in a while. Today I wanted to log back in, but it doesn’t work. I can’t figure it out. The server is running, this is the result of
systemctl status webmin

root@admn2:~# systemctl status webmin

root@admn2:~# grep 'allow\|port' /etc/webmin/miniserv.conf
allow= LOCAL is my local IP address, I can access the server virtualmin is running on via SSH.

Sorry for asking in case this is trivial, I’m sure I’m just missing something pretty obvious?

You might have found the problem I had

I ended up rebooting but maybe there was a better way

Thanks. It was acutally not that problem but it made me think of another possibility. The Virtual Server I’m using has a vendor provided Firewall, I deleted the rule to allow TCP traffic from my IP address on Port 10000 and re-created it. Now it works again. In any case, the Cloud-Provider was at fault here. Thanks.
