System not ready for use by virtualmin

Hi people.

Im running a test on a VM that involves setting up virtualmin.
ive installed it successfully and run through the post install config.
when it comes to checking the config i get this error:
“The Suexec command on your system is configured to only run scripts under /var/www, but the Virtualmin base directory is /home. CGI and PHP scripts run as domain owners will not be executed.”

im running it on ubuntu 9.04 x64. i know that it isnt a supported distro, but is part of my testing.

how do i recompile suexec to use the virtualmin home directory?

Thanks in advanced


You’re definitely doing things the hard way if you aren’t using a supported distro :slight_smile:

Also, one of the reasons Virtualmin isn’t supported on 9.04 as it’s not an LTS release, meaning it doesn’t have a long life-cyle for a server.

That said, if you want to use that version, you might have a look at apache2-suexec-custom, which should allow you to specify a custom location without needing to recompile Apache/suexec.
