Error - Perl execution failed


I have Virtualmin running on a debian-6.5 system.

I want to import a backup file from Plesk 9.5 for Windows (The Mailserver in Plesk for Windows is Mailenable).

Everything runs fine until:

Re-creating mail users …
HTTP/1.0 500 Perl execution failed Server: MiniServ/1.590 Date: Fri, 17 Aug 2012 09:57:59 GMT Content-type: text/html; Charset=iso-8859-1 Connection: close

Error - Perl execution failed

Not a HASH reference at /usr/share/webmin/virtual-server/ line 895.

If i import a backup where are no email users, the problem doesn’t show up.

Any ideas ?


Hmm, it’s possible that you’re running into a bug. Or it’s possible that it’s related to it being the Windows version of Plesk, I’m not sure if that’s supported (I didn’t actually know there was such a thing until now :slight_smile:

Just to be super-sure that it’s not something simple – that error will sometimes fix itself if you restart Webmin, which can be done with this command:

/etc/init.d/webmin restart

After doing that, are you able to import your backup?

If not, you may want to file a bug report, using the “Support” link at the top of the page. And then Jamie can work with you regarding some specifics.


Error is still the same. :frowning:

Starting to file a bug report now. :slight_smile:
