Virtualmin Command Line Interface (CLI) on Joyent Shared does not Work

Although the CLI is installed and visible for Joyent shared users, it does not work (except for the help commands). Joyent claims it requires root, and thus cannot be used by the individual shared users.

See forum discussions:

If this is true, is it a bug? If it is not, could you work with Joyent to make it available?

It just may be that Joyent is not familiar with how to make it work for shared.



Yes, it is correct that the Virtualmin API is only available for root - this isn't a Joyent-specific issue, but rather a limitation of Virtualmin.
