Weird installation issue

I installed Virtualmin GPL in to latest Debian. Installation process jammed in some point and server stopped responding. Couldlt connect via ssh, didnt ping.

I waited awhile and rebooted. Virtualmin was up, everytyhing seems working fine. I reinstalled debian and tryed again. Same thing.

So, everything seems to be workingf, but how do i know that installation went trough, and why installer makes server non responsive?

Before i started, installer yelled about /tmp folder being mounted with noexec flag. I removed flag, so it wasnt an issue.


Are you using a VPS of some sort? If so, what kind of VPS are you using?

And how much RAM do you have? You can determine that with “free -m”.


Yes, i have dedicated server from Leaseweb. I have 8G ram.
