[API] "DBI connect failed" after "list-domains" with "--multiline" switch


I used the 'list-domains' API command with the '--multiline' switch and go this in the output:

# virtualmin list-domains --multiline

Error: DBI connect failed : Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)
DBI connect failed : Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)

As you can see only DNS is enabled (this is a DNS-hosting-only server).

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

Best regards

if mysql is not running then there would not be a socket to connect to.
in that case I doubt this is a bug.

Yes, I understand that but I don't want it to be running on purpose (the only module that I have enabled is the DNS module). Why does Virtualmin check for MySQL connection when I specifically disabled the MySQL module for the virtual server (domain)? This is what bothers me.

I think that Virtualmin should not try to connect to MySQL during the list-domains command if the MySQL module is disabled and the domain does not have any MySQL databases.
