It had been a while since I installed any patches, so I decided to 'intall all packages" tonight. The machine seemed to freeze when it was installing the webmin patch, so I stupidly rebooted. It seems there was also an error while installing perl updates, if I remember correctly.
Now, webmin does not start at bootup.
If I "/etc/init.d/webmin status" It says "webmin is stopped". If I "/etc/init.d/webmin start", it gives me no feedback but Webmin does not startup.
If I "/etc/init.d/webmin restart" I get Stopping Webmin server in /usr/libexec/webmin cat: /var/webmin/miniserv.pid: No such file or directory kill: usage: kill [-s sigspec | -n signum | -sigspec] pid | jobspec ... or kill -l [sigspec] /etc/init.d/webmin: line 62: /etc/webmin/start: Permission denied
I assume its just "noise" because webmin is not running.
nano /var/webmin/miniserv.error does have the following last entries: scheduled_collect_system_info : Already running scheduled_collect_system_info : Already running Failed to initialize SSL connection Failed to initialize SSL connection [19/Jan/2013:00:59:05 -0700] [220.127.116.11] Bad Request : This web server is running in SSL mode. Try the URL http$ [19/Jan/2013:00:59:05 -0700] [18.104.22.168] Bad Request : This web server is running in SSL mode. Try the URL http$
I think this may be a problem with PERL, but, I'm not sure.
If I try to visit the previously working webmin page in a web browser, I get Error 102 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED): The server refused the connection.
