Activating user login in panel

Hello guys

I have installed webmin and virtual min on my dedicated server and I am now able to make new virtual servers / users both in webmin and virtualmin but I am confused

  1. What is the difference between the user that has been made in virtualmin under a virtual server with a user that has been made within webmin ?

  2. How can I make a user that can have access to virtualmin panel ( given that we want to sell hosting based on webmin we assumed webmin would grant us the opportunity to dedicated a panel on each user for limited changed ) I have made quite a few users in both virtualmin and webmin which none I can login via the panel:10000 and I am stuck badly

  3. How can we make users outside the virtualmin panel ? I mean is it at all possible to make users in a registration form and then insert the data into webmin SQL database ?

Thanks fellow webmin experts.

Virtualmin users, as in domain owners and email/FTP users, are created as Linux system users, while Webmin users are internal to Webmin.


To create a Webmin login for a domain owner, you just need to turn on that feature in the virtual server's settings, in the screen where you choose whether website, email, database etc. are active for that domain.


Virtualmin has a shell/command line API with tons of commands, which you could call from your external registration form, provided the relevant process is running with root permissions (which is required to execute Virtualmin API calls).
