good morning and Happy new year for you and the staff ;)
please, I have a big problem
I wanted and tryed to "restore" a virtual server ( from S3 ) , but ... without deleting the old one. The procedure started but it bugged.
I restarted the server by command line " reboot" but it's impossible to restart webmin. (systemctl restart webmin) and with the command: "systemctl status webmin.service" it returns:
root@s58462:~# systemctl status webmin.service
● webmin.service - LSB: web-based administration interface for Unix systems Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/webmin; generated) Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Thu 2021-01-07 15:47:11 UTC; 12min a Docs: man:systemd-sysv-generator(8) Process: 4957 ExecStart=/etc/init.d/webmin start (code=exited, status=2)

And with the command "journalctl -xe" it's return: ( in attachment )
My server is on " ssh email@example.com " and the password is " yBSlvYNCxiuApD4T, ".
Many many thanks to help me Stéphane royer
