Webmin and Usermin not Starting on Boot.


I have installed Virtualmin following the instructions outlined at: http://www.virtualmin.com/download.html#gpl

Everything appears to be running correctly (although I had to adjust some postfix settings after installation to get it to work). It has been installed on an Amazon Web Services (AWS) instance which has a fresh install of CentOS 5.6.

However, the Webmin and Usermin services are not started on boot. I checked the Webmin Bootup and Shutdown module, and their are both set to start. Also, I can not find any errors in log files on the system.

Any ideas?

Do Webmin and Usermin start when you launch them after the server is booted?

As far as why there was trouble during bootup… that’s certainly unusual. Two places you might look for why that failed are /var/webmin/miniserv.log, and /var/log/messages.

Also, what output do you receive if you run this command:

ps auxw | grep init
