Today I successfully installed virtualmin on Kubuntu 10.10. I experienced 3 problems:
Install.ssh: I had to change the installscript
case $os_version in 10.04) repos="virtualmin-lucid virtualmin-universal" into: case $os_version in 10.10) repos="virtualmin-lucid virtualmin-universal"
Second problem: I use nilfs2 as filesystem; I like it because it is extremely fast; After installing Virtualmin I discovered that Virtualmin had added groupquota and userquota to /etc/fstab; I had to remove them before I could boot into the system.
Third problem: Apache problem; Starting apache gave error; Status remained not started, although Apache was started; Found the solution in the forum: I had to add "var/run/apache2.pid" into webmin/servers/Apache Webservers/module_config/Configuration_category: System Configuration/Path to Apache PID file (At the bottum): /var/run/apache2.pid
So now I can use Virtualmin instead of a xampp control panel; I prefer Virtualmin, because apache, mysql, php is still automatically updated through Kubuntuś package manager. And I also saw a lot of other interesting stuff within Virtualmin.
