Is Virtualmin necessary on the master cloudmin node?

I am wondering if I must have VirtualMin installed on my Cloudmin master. I don’t want to run Apache, MySQL, etc,etc,etc. on the master. I only want it to manage DNS (which makes sense).

Can I only run cloudmin and webmin?

Thanks in advance!

Nope – you only need Webmin.

Cloudmin is a Webmin module – and you should be able to handle your DNS management tasks from within Webmin.

Have a good one!


Sounds good. Can you tell me how to uninstall virtualmin? :slight_smile:

I have tried yum remove … but that doesn’t seem to do this trick. I’d also like to remove all services (i.e. apache, etc).

Ah, I figured it out. To uninstall you do:

yum remove wbm-virtual-server-3.73.gpl-1

I guess I can remove the services myself as well. Thanks!


Another way to remove Virtualmin is to run the script with the “-u” parameter.

However, even with that, you’ll end up needing to manually remove some packages I believe, if you’re not interested in Apache and friends.
