I’ve been using Webmin/Virtualmin for several years now and it was always quite a help and lots of fun. But yesterday I stumbled upon a problem which I was not able to resolve as of yet. I’m not even sure if it is Webmin/Virtualmin related, or configuration mismanagement, but I’m out of ideas at the moment.
Situtation: fresh Ubuntu installation, Webmin 1.962/Virtualmin 6.14. After initial setup was completed, I created a new virtual server. As far as I could see, everything was OK, but one thing. The php-fcgi-somedomain-com start/stop script was missing from init.d directory. I checked ‘Webmin > System > Bootup and Shutdown’ and found php-fcgi-somedomain-com.service, Starts Nginx PHP FastCGI server for somedomain.com (Virtualmin). (That .service part was a bit strange.) On my other server (Ubuntu 20/Webmin 1.960/Virtualmin 6.10) there was no similar problem. For each virtualhost there was a script in init.d. directory (e.g. php-fcgi-somedomain-com, Start Nginx PHP fcgi server for somedomain.com).
Thanks in advance for your time. Any help would be much appreciated.
Operating system: Ubuntu (fresh install)
OS version: Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS (focal)
PHP: multiple (7.3, 7.4, 8.0)
