Yesterday we have a catastrophic failure of hardware and have managed to recover but ended up using a previous kernel during boot. This resulted in SELinux relabelling the entire file structure and took some 4-5 hours to complete.
I cannot afford to repeat this procedure as it's a live production server, so I need to debug a problem preventing Webmin from starting.
As it stands, I have a Centos 6.4 server running a number of cloudmin VMs via KVM. We have both Cloudmin Pro and Virtualmin Pro licenses. The host system is running, and our Cloudmin master (on another machine) is able to connect and manage the VMs via SSH, which are all also running without issue.
Unfortunately though I cannot make Webmin start on this host server, and neither can I find any logs with relevant info as to why it's failing.
SELinux is currently in permissive mode.
ps aux | grep webmin and
psaux | grep miniserv return no results.
service webmin restart and
/etc/init.d/webmin restart just return nothing to the shell and have no effect on any log files in
Where else should I look for clues to dig into this?
Thanks in advance.
