Virtualmin installation on centos

I used following script but currently it is not working

sudo yum -y update
sudo yum -y install perl
sudo yum install wget
wget http://software.virtualmin.com/gpl/scripts/install.sh
sudo sh install.sh
reboot

don’t install perl. the script does that for you.
no need to reboot either unless it asks you.

so I should leave sudo yum -y install perl

and it will be fine?

the script will install perl, I’ve never install perl.

P.S. You do know that installs a older version of VM?
Centos 7 will not be supported in the future, so Rocky 8 would be a better OS using the Beta script.

I am facing this problem

Ok, sounds like the repo may not have the version 6 anymore, maybe. I haven’t used that script for a while.

Try the new beta version at virtualmin-install/virtualmin-install.sh at master · virtualmin/virtualmin-install · GitHub
That installs version 7

P.S. I’ll just do a quick centos 7 install and test.

I appreciate you. I am not very technical.
Can I get the script like the above I shared

like this
sudo yum -y update
sudo yum -y install perl
sudo yum install wget
wget http://software.virtualmin.com/gpl/scripts/install.sh
sudo sh install.sh

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/virtualmin/virtualmin-install/master/virtualmin-install.sh

I had same issue using the old script.

can you write that script in the short form as I shared

like this
sudo yum -y update
sudo yum -y install perl
sudo yum install wget
wget http://software.virtualmin.com/gpl/scripts/install.sh
sudo sh install.sh

because I am not very technical, I am not aware of its commands. Please if you can.

Not sure what you mean, you can right click on the link and use copy link then paste into your shell, I have not short form.
then
sh virtualmin-install.sh
btw if your using the new script after the old script use the -s first to fix the repo locations. you will get a warning about it
I tested seems to installed fine.

Thank you very much. I am trying

This should be fixed now.

Run yum clean all and try again.

Hi Joe, you mean
below script will work now?

sudo yum -y update
sudo yum -y install perl
sudo yum install wget
wget http://software.virtualmin.com/gpl/scripts/install.sh
sudo sh install.sh
reboot

You only need 3 lines.

yum clean all
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/virtualmin/virtualmin-install/master/virtualmin-install.sh
sh virtualmin-install.sh

sudo is not needed in front of the line if your a root user.

There is no reason to use the beta installer on CentOS 7.

But, also, no one should be installing a new system on CentOS 7 today. It is already several years old.

I fired up Centos 7 to see if there was a issue and ran the default install script and it fails. Totally clean install on Vultr. I thought maybe the repos may have changed and missing VM6 or something in there.
Gotta go to work now I can try again later but I can’t see running yum clean all would make a difference is if it is clean when I first ran the script.

@stefan1959 thank you very much. its working for me :slight_smile:

No prob, but like Joe said, centos 7 is getting old. Rocky 8 or even 9 maybe is a better option. They a Centos almost clone. https://rockylinux.org/
