Personally I would not install it on Virtualmin Instead I would recommend to run proxy on a firewall pfSense

Your pastebin does not exist..

PFsense, it is good for catching to save bandwidth but Squid is better for proxy purposes. It may be good to install a full PFSense with Squid support but it is more lightweight if you just install webmin + squid + fail2ban/CSF. This will give you a full control panel to admin your firewall.

For comparison.. I have a squid, fail2ban/CSF on 2 servers. one server have no webmin and one that have webmin.. The one with webmin is easier to manage and solve the dependency of logging to SSH which is sometimes hard when you are mobile. The only advantage of removing webmin is to save 3% CPU usage and 30mb memory which I hardly hit on full with my 756mb memory single core cloud VPS
