I’v been using webmin+virtualmin on several servers for quite some time. 3 weeks ago aprox. we upgraded some servers to the new webmin and virtualmin versions and apply the new authentic-them. This last weekend we do a scheduled reboot of these server. Only one is presenting a login problem. You can connect to webmin, but when you enters your credentials the browser keeps waiting forever. I’m suspecting that the new theme could be the problem.
By now I have mirrored the server to another for testing, so this what I’ve done:
Try to force a reinstall, without removing webmin, by issuing yum resintall webmin; but it get stuck in applying post install script. In fact a process called run_postinstall appears to do something as it uses some CPU ~10-20% but it never ends.
Force uninstalled webmin only by rpm -e --nodeps webmin and then install by rpm -ivh webmin; with the same results.
I’ve noticed that for each session that I tried to login it creates a process called miniserv.pl, which is ok, but it keeps running using 10%-20% CPU, but if leave this for I will I noticed an increase on memory usage, draining memory resources.
I will try now to change the default theme in miniserv.conf
If some could give me hand on this I will appreciate.
