Hello Virtualmin team,
After hours of troubleshooting and countless attempts in various methods, provided by: forums, support, docs, internet, etc. I have yet to resolve my issue in regards to: “Temporary failure in name resolution”.
I removed, via the Webmin module, a Software Package: Cyrus and dependencies; upon doing so, the server froze and did not complete/execute thoroughly. Upon restart, I seem to have lost ‘connection’ to the DNS server (not installed or so it says). The server can not resolve nameservers, and as usual, Ubuntu Sever (on text gui) can not connect to the internet.
The following steps were taking for troubleshooting purposes, none have worked.
reset network interface credentials
add/edit nameservers (22.214.171.124 etc.)
Edit /etc/environment (remove proxy, temp)
sudo apt-get update (no internet connection, operations fail - can not resolve/internet)
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo dpkg --reconfigure -a
Webmin status will output that it is active but cannot find the miniserv.conf,
Virtualmin status returns ‘not installed’ or ‘missing’
Last thing to note: I am connecting via Unix/SSH on Ubuntu multi-user.target, I cannot switch to graphical.target, as the command does not initiate the gui. Therefore, I have no way of accessing the server via localhost or edit the files, and dependencies visually/manually.
What steps should I to take from here?
The server is running/active, files are not corrupted and the operating system is also not corrupted. Simply need to point the daemon to open up the network connection to reinstall and reconfigure modules etc, and resolve nameservers (primary server).
Look forward to all of your insights.
