finally looking at the 2.xxx webmin releases … upgraded via the VirtualMin repos to webmin 2.001 — which I think is the newest one in the VirtualMin repo.
Under Webmin – Tools – Text Login ---- I find the AjaxTerm utility, with proper credit at the bottom of the display to Antony Lesuisse.
As with many modules, at the top left is the button Module Config (or a gear icon). When trying to view the config using the Authentic Theme, my screen immediately displays
Require ajaxterm/ajaxterm-lib.pl failed : Died at (eval 327) line 1.
and when using the VirtualMin Framed Theme, I do get the two configurable items listed, but when clicking on SAVE, I receive
Failed to save config :
Require ajaxterm/ajaxterm-lib.pl failed : Died at (eval 93) line 1.
I am embarrassed to say, I have a VERY old server where it all does work – the config file /etc/webmin/ajaxterm/config gets updated properly.
Is AjaxTerm being phased out, perhaps its gone already in webmin 2.010 and this is a moot point once 2.010 is vetted and available in the VirtualMin repos?
That config file just has two lines, one being of the virtual shell should auto-login as ROOT – if I manually edit that item and toggle it back and forth – 1/0 – AjaxTerm does honor it and do what you would expect.
