Updated Webmin - File Manager will not save changes

Not sure if this is the right location for this issue, however:

We have updated to Webmin 1.941 and Usermin 1.791 (CentOS Linux 7.7.1908)
It seems now that the file manager cannot save changes to documents.

e.g. = main.css (edit document)

  • Edit the document
  • Save (We do receive a green “success save message”)
  • Close Document
  • Re-open document changes are not there

We can successfully create directories, change file names, copy files, etc.
We have now tested on 2 different servers with the same result

Reverted to Using FTP/SSH and works fine, however, we do have users that use the File Manager.

We found a solution to this issue and if anyone else is experiencing this problem restart webmin.

/etc/init.d/webmin restart after updating webmin/usermin

This seems to correct the issue with the File Manager.


It was expected bug in 1.940 release but, it’s correct, 1.941 is fixing it.

Thanks for the feedback.
