I did a recent install.sh in a fresh 14.04 x32 Created 2 virtual servers and migrated 2 websites No custom settings or tweaking yet..

I did encounter small issue on dovecot where I cannot login to webmail (roundcube) and from mail client (thunderbird) I only check the dovecot's Networking and Protocols.. Hit the save button... Then I can login to webmail as well as from mail client... Don't know if this is an issue... Just sharing what I encounter.

A question... Should there be further updates on the install.sh , what is the better option? - uninstall using the install.sh and start the install again - perform from a clean 14.04 again

Waiting patiently for the official support on 14.04... So I can move to a new vps :)

I have finished installing on a fresh install of ubuntu 14.04. Everything went fine except I had to change the location of Mcrypt extension from extension=/mcrypt.so to extension =/usr/lib/php5/20121212+lfs/mcrypt.so

in mcrypt.ini

I also did a fresh install on an Ubuntu 14.04 VPS. Everything went fine although Awstats was missing. Managed to fix it by installing it later with "apt-get install webmin-virtualmin-awstats". Now I am going to test if sites will work correctly (virtual servers).

Did you by chance download the install.sh just before performing your installation?

In theory, it was updated a few days ago (perhaps a week ago?) to include that particular module, amongst others.

If you're using a recent copy of the install.sh though, let us know and we can review the installer to determine why that didn't work for you.

Hello, my version should be recent (in that time). I always download a fresh install file before installing. Also I do apt-get update/upgrade.

I included a copy of the used install.sh file.

cognosco, the script has been changed within the last 24 hours but contains errors as per my other latest thread in this forum.

As mailman gets tried to setup and is broken as a initial mailman list file is missing from the script causing it not to start and virtualmin to to say the system is not ready for use regardless if you have it enabled or not.

Also take note of the /root/virtualmin-install.log file which is the install log and should contain errors about the install if any in there.

For now if you can try a system like Centos-minimal which is what Virtualmin itself this site etc is run on or a Older Ubuntu being 12.04LTS

Ubuntu 14.04 has a few things broken still from my testing which I'll try to help Eric on with logs and testing if its beneficial to him as I am fresh installing out of the ubuntu server install each time with no server services like web server only OpenSSL is setup and setting up virtualmin only after a package update and a reboot, so if there are errors this eliminates anything on my end with the software side of things with rouge or incompatible packages and stuff unless its hardware related.

For some reason, I can't login to roundcube to access emails. I keep getting this error "Connection to storage server failed."

Also trying to now access phpmyadmin is giving me "This webpage has a redirect loop". What do you think is wrong.

There's a few questions I have for you regarding this issue... to keep things simple, could you open a new Forum thread for the issues your seeing? In that new thread, mention that you're using Ubuntu 14.04, and let us know whether it's a new install or an upgrade.

I notice some things like awstats subversion dab etc aren't installed or listed in the features and plugins area I only see CORE items listed, there listed in the script and for example awstats folder and files are in the /usr/share/awstats folder but there not shown in virtualmin under ubuntu 14.04.

This was done under Ubuntu Server 14.04 on a clean install no optional packages selected running the virtualmin script after a apt-get update and apt-get upgrade.

My other thread im working with Eric on these issues as its related to the script installer which is getting updated and changes.

I am trying to update ubuntu from 12.04 to 14.04, I have a few virtualmin installs in DigitalOcean droplets. I have the exact same problem as described in this support thread:


I get the "ubuntu-minimal" essential package not being found. I believe the reason for this has to do with the sources listed on my system, and I'd appreciate your fine help once again.

This seems to be a Virtualmin-specific issue. How can I get around it??

Many thanks!

I'm not aware of anything in the Virtualmin repo that might cause such a problem -- the Virtualmin repo doesn't provide the ubuntu-minimal package.

While we have heard of this issue occurring before, it's only happened to users using your particular provider. We're not able to reproduce that when using a dedicated server, or different VPS providers.

However, you could always try commenting out the Virtualmin-related repositories in /etc/apt/sources.list, and see if that resolves the problem you're having.

Another option is that you could try changing the mirrors you're using for Ubuntu to point to official mirrors, rather than those of your provider.
