Debian: Unable to open /etc/network/interfaces

I’ve just installed virtualmin with on Debian 6. Everything seems fine except 1 error in Virtualmin: Unable to open /etc/network/interfaces.

and i’ve not found that file in my debian installation.

What can i do?



There should be a /etc/network/interfaces file on all Debian installations, it’s how the network configuration is performed.

Are using a dedicated server, or a VPS?


So, it’s a vps and I’ve contacted the isp. They has told me that they use a special configuration and I could fill interfaces with “dummy” data. Could work?

It might be as simple as just creating that file – even a blank file may make Virtualmin happy :slight_smile:


ok thanks… i’ll try
