Do you want to continue? [Y/n] Abort.

why does it say abort immediately? I cant seem to type Y

Is it better to SSH directly instead of using the command in Virtualmin?

You should not be installing mod_php, ever. There is no reason to use mod_php today.

I don’t know if that’ll help resolve your issue, but mod_php is always a mistake.

I guess it’s because there was a warning about this at the top of the output, and you probably missed or didn’t understand it:

Use a standard console using ssh in a Linux terminal, or PuTTY on Windows.
