Virtualmin non-functional


Grabbed me a VPS, CentOS 5.6 - Installed Virtualmin, Via Initially err’d - out of memory - But the second run the burst had kicked in, and span through without concern.

It appears to of deleted the webpage the pre-installed apache was hosting, although this was only a test page, and looked to be centOS default -=- and of no concern - But I am unable to get virtualmin up on port 10000.

Another test page placed in /var/www/html/ is served perfectly.

I have spun through logs I can find, Most are either blank or show no concern - I have also reviewed conf files, Again I can see little out of place - Although I don’t exactly know what I’m doing here.

I have noted /var/www/cgi-bin/ is empty, And feel this may be the possible cause. Other concerned dir’s appear populated.

Although /var/log/httpd/error_log has a large no of child-process segfaults, The lowest relevent line is:
Tue May 22 21:45:22 2012] [notice] Apache/2.2.3 (CentOS) configured – resuming normal operations

It all appears to be there, From what I can see, Apart from /var/www/cgi-bin

Any solutions?


I’ve used webmin successfully on other machines, I note that https://{domain}:10000 Fails harder n http://{domain}:10000 - I’m used to the latter promptin switch to secured conn.

Knowing more about your VPS configuration might help in answering your problem.
Something like “Virtualmin Non-Functional” is almost as interesting as the common “It doesn’t work!” type of stuff usually found in a lot of other software places.
But knowing a bit more about how much RAM you have etc would be useful.
The segfault errors indicate that you don’t have enough memory.
What about the low memory guide?
I believe a document exists on this as well, and that might help.
Hope this helps!

Thank-you for taking the time to reply to my post.

If I knew more details as to why it didn’t work, Don’t you think I’d just fix it, instead of asking stupid questions?

In fact, whilst writing this post, that is precisely what I did. whilst jumping through logs - To show it is functional, I noticed /var/log/httpd/access_log didn’t show any attempts in for virtualmin.

Turns out that it isn’t being passed prt 10k via DNS - we shall investigate - Dialing https://{IP}:10000 worked a charm, giving me a webmin login, and then a virtualmin panel. No messing.

Its awlways teh simples things, eh?
