Save of config changes not made

When I run re-check configuration I get:

Virtualmin is configured to setup DNS zones, but this system is not setup to use itself as a DNS server. Either add to the list of DNS servers, or turn off the BIND feature on the module config page.

When I turn off BIND feature on the module config page I get:

Failed to save enabled features : The plugin Mailman cannot be used : The mailman queue processor /var/lib/mailman/bin/qrunner is not running on your system. It can be started in the Bootup and Shutdown module.

Attempting to start mailman it complained that there was no mailman list.

I had to manually create a mailman list to be able to make changes to virualmin.

Is this the normal situation or is it because did not detect ubuntu 14.04.03 as a valid OS?


Another option that might work at

Same here. The following fixed it for us.

  1. If your hosting provider has any type of  "Auto-configure Networking" feature enabled. Deactivate it. If it's enable it might interfere with your network settings.
    • When enable, every time you reboot your server the network helper would automatically re-configure some network files. For example on Debian the files are: /etc/network/interfaces & /etc/resolv.conf
  2. Reboot your server
  3. Navigate to "Webmin > Networking > Network Configuration" page
  4. Click on "Hostname and DNS Client" icon
  5. Under "DNS servers" section. Double check that the first entry reads as follow
  6. If there are already other IP addresses listed in there move them below. So that is at the top/front. Below, add or keep other IP addresses only if you really know what you're doing.
  7. Click on "Save" button
  8. Click on "Apply Configuration" button
  9. Reboot your server

About the Mailman error. IF you do not use Mailman Mailing List on that server, you can simply deactivate it. To do so

  1. Go to "Virtualmin -> System Settings -> Features and Plugins"
  2. Next to "Mailman" row
    1. "Feature or Plugin"        [UNCHECKED]
    2. "Default"            [UNCHECKED]
  3. Click on "Save" button
  4. Reboot your server

If you do want to use Mailman find more information within that ticket


Yeah as Francewhoa mentioned, if you don’t need Mailman and BIND, you can simply disable both features in System Settings -> Features and Plugins.
