Trying out the newest version of Webmin on an Ubuntu 64 OS, and Apache is driving me nuts. I removed the 1st virtual domain which I guess is the default var/www folder, and apache wont start up, says it looks for the file that is suppose to tell it the list of sites , and its either no longer there, or its not readable. This is the second time I had this problem, and the first time, I tried to reinstall apache at the comand prompt, and it created more problems. Removing the module from webmin modules will keep the virtual zones in there when you re-install, so its not really like a fresh start f you make a mistake. I wound up reinstalling webmin, after doing a purge of everything...and then I recreated this same problem when I deleted the virtual host setting for the var/www folder. It seems you cant get around not having that zone active, but it will let you delete it without a warning....and I guess the module delete function dont ask you if you want to start over or not. I thought I could remove that one because if I type: http://ipaddressofserver , whatever is in that folder will show up, and at times the site I was working on setting up was the only one coming up when I called paths to different folders from that url.
I also have problems with postfix and sendmail and fetchmail.....seems I cant get any of them to connect together to actually fetch the mail for my single email user.
I used Virtualmin/ Webmin almost 2 years ago, and was hit with some kind of script attack that caused pages to become blank...so I ditched it. Later I was told that it may have been because the host provider did not do all their updates. I never really found out how it got there, but thought I would try it now and test the waters again. I dont remember it being this complex though the last time, but back then I had someone helping me that did most the setup. Is there a sequence to follow when you set up the mail systems and domains in apache? I noticed some modules depend on apache, and at times more then one mail program got installed, how, I dont know.....
