creating virtual server on debian 7 / openpanel server

hello, I'm new here and do not have much experience with configuring VPS. I have running a VP webserver with one website (Joomla 3.3.3)- and installed SSL. Also openpanel is installed. Server is running okay and the website also.

Last week i installed virtualmin and will say goodby to openpanel. I think first step to do is setup the virtual server. My question is - will configure the VS within virtualmin conflict/destroy my installed website/mysql/SSL environment?



Howdy -- we'd only recommend installing Virtualmin onto a new server that doesn't have any websites or email accounts setup on it yet.

Attempting to use Virtualmin on a system that has existing sites would likely cause problems.

Our suggestion would be to install Virtualmin onto a new server, and then to migrate your existing websites and related data over to that new server.

If you had any additional questions, since it appears you're using Virtualmin GPL there, you'd actually want to use the Forums for obtaining support. We monitor the Forums, along with lots of wonderful folks in the community. Thanks!
