on some older RedHat systems with older VirtualMin versions, I see in the virtualmin-universal repo config file the baseurl is
but on a few other newer systems I see
This difference came to my attention when I was looking for webmin 1.999-2 – the newer repo has it while the older one does not.
from another post –
Perhaps, you have issues with Virtualmin repos? It is easy to fix your repos by downloading [
install.sh ] (Downloading and Installing Virtualmin – Virtualmin) script and running it with
install.sh -s flag to setup repos and exit.
I believe there are similar differences in the baseurl for the virtualmin repo too.
Should I go around and update the repo configs on all my systems, or are the older URLs still supported?
If the older repo URL should still work, please add webmin 1.999-2 to it
You can use the new beta script with the --setup flag to update repos
Yes, this is the best way to re-configure repos automatically. We put a lot of efforts into making it work across different installs and various distros smoothly.
As mentioned previously by Stefan, use Virtualmin 7 pre-release version of
install.sh script and run it as
install.sh --setup from your console.
ok – and I see that INSTALL.SH above is a live URL link to the file at github … THANKS.
AND … does this mean the ‘other’ repo will never get 1.999-2 and forever stay with 1.994-1?
No, I don’t think @Joe has forgotten and will push upcoming Webmin 2.000 to the old repos as well. There was a bug in Webmin 1.999-2 which affects older systems (i.e. CentOS 7).
Now I am a bit nervous … as I was hoping to upgrade several RedHat/Centos 7 boxes to 1.999-2.
What is a good landing spot for webmin for Centos 7 ? Maybe I don’t use webmin enough … at the moment several servers seem happy with 1.994-1
There only one problem found with CentOS 7, that is Webmin BIND config file is being updated incorrectly. You can manually save
/etc/webmin/bind8/config file and restore it after manual upgrade of Webmin 1.999-2 … or rather (better) wait for upcoming Webmin 2.000 release to appear in Virtualmin repos.
I have centos 7, upgraded with no issues.
