Accessing Virtualmin by using server name

Hi: I just installed my Virtualmin server, added my first virtual domain ( and created an Address Record entry for the server including the period at the end.

I can access my server by using the External IP, but not by server name using:

Also, I created other virtual servers and are unable to access usermin. One of them is:

What can be wrong? Thanks!

Accessing Webmin/Virtualmin sing the server name is working for me... that may just mean that you're dealing with a DNS cache issue, and that it'll be working fine in a few hours.

What error is it that you're receiving though?

As far as Usermin goes -- that does appear to not be working.

That may just mean it's not running... what happens if you run this command:

/etc/init.d/usermin restart

After doing that, are you able to access Usermin on port 20000?

You were right, I can access my server now using the server name. Regarding Usermin access, I restarted the service and I'm able to log in, but I got the following message when restarting the usermin service:

Stopping Usermin server in /usr/libexec/usermin cat: /var/usermin/ No such file or directory kill: usage: kill [-s sigspec | -n signum | -sigspec] pid | jobspec ... or kill -l [sigspec] Starting Usermin server in /usr/libexec/usermin perl: warning: Setting locale failed. perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings: LANGUAGE = (unset), LC_ALL = (unset), LC_CTYPE = "UTF-8", LANG = "" are supported and installed on your system. perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C"). Pre-loaded WebminCore

I don't know if this is related to the other warning, but I also get this when login in the server through ssh:

-bash: warning: setlocale: LC_CTYPE: cannot change locale (UTF-8): No such file or directory
