Server login Moving problem with Webmin-Error 500

I moved a CENTOS 5 virtual machine to a new host, and while everything else seems to be working (so far), I can no longer log in to webmin.

The login page comes up, I enter my credentials, and then I get a 500 web server error.

I am using https in this case… And I have told it to ignore the certificate issues (the basic shipped certificate is installed.)

I am using the IP address to connect, not a domain name, from the host machine.

This works completely on the other machine, and I haven’t even changed the IP address.

Thanks for the help!

Answered my own problem. By checking the logs at /etc/webmin/miniserv.error, I discovered that I had a cookie acceptance problem in my server browser.

Fixed it!

Got PAM problems too, but everything works now…

PAM errors are harmless. They’re just Webmin trying to load the PAM module, but if it doesn’t exist it falls back to shadow. Either one works fine, as long as you aren’t using LDAP or NIS. (I haven’t started packaging the PAM module to make this error go away, because it makes people nervous, but it’s probably not in the default install yet.)
