Howto have more than one webmin login for a domain?

Hi all,

what’s the preferred way of adding more than one webmin login to a virtualmin-controlled domain?

Actually I’d like to enable webmin login permissions for mail&ftp users just like other permissions. That way I’d make sure that removing such a user would remove the webmin account, too.

What do you think? Kind regards,


The “Extra Administrators” feature is probably what you’d want here. :slight_smile:

Sounds promising. I wasn’t aware of such a feature, so I searched in Virtualmin for “Extra Administrators”. Some references to “Extra Administrators” came up, when I click on any of them, I get:

You are not allowed to manage extra administrators

Call Stack Trace

File Line Function
/usr/share/webmin/virtual-server/list_admins.cgi 9 WebminCore::error
(eval 107) 6 (eval)
/usr/share/webmin/ 2272 (eval)
/usr/share/webmin/ 878 miniserv::handle_request

What’s wrong?

In order to add an extra admin, you’d first log into Virtualmin as root, then click Administration Options -> Manage Extra Admins.

From there, you can click “Add a new extra administrator”, which should allow you to set one up.

Does that work for you, or do you receive the same error when trying that?


Hm, there’s no such entry below “Administration Options” when I log in as root.

Virtualmin 3.83 Pro
Webmin 1.534
Theme 8.0

One thing to verify – you’d have to be looking at a top-level Virtual Server, not a sub-server.

Is there any chance you could post a screenshot of what you see there?


It is a top-level server that I’m looking at. See here:

Any idea why that entry wouldn’t show up?

If you go into Edit Virtual Server, which features are enabled?

In particular, is the “Webmin Login Enabled” option checked?


sigh I’m feeling stupid now.

That feature wasn’t enabled. Doing so gives me the “Manage extra admins” menu entry, just like you suggested. Thanks,


It’s okay, there’s a lot of options, and it can be hard to keep track of them all :slight_smile:

I’m glad it’s working, thanks for the update!
