Install failed on CentOS

Hi All, Just purchased Virtualmin and ran the installer on a clean CentOS build. Unfortunately the install has failed, yet the tail of the script showed no errors:

[code:1] INFO - Installing Virtualmin and all related packages now using the command: INFO - yum -y -d 2 install virtualmin-base INFO - in progress, please wait... INFO - in progress, please wait... Succeeded. INFO - Installation of virtualmin-base completed. INFO - If you are not regularly updating your system nightly using yum or up2date INFO - we strongly recommend you update now, using the following commands: INFO - Fedora/CentOS: yum update INFO - RHEL: up2date -u INFO - Checking for updates to Virtualmin-related packages... INFO - in progress, please wait INFO - in progress, please wait... Succeeded. INFO - Succeeded. [/code:1]

I tried accessing Virtualmin via both IP and qualified hostname. Also both http/https, all failed. Also as a pre-caution, I shutdown iptables as it seems the installer did not add the port to the config. However, even off I am not able to access the web client.

After the installer script, am I meant to start the service? I assumed the installer did everything for you in terms of enabling services and such.

Thanks in advance,

That looks like a clean install. I'd be surprised if everything didn't happen as it was supposed to.

You can look at the /root/virtualmin-install.log for more details.

The service should have been started by the install. You can check with:

service webmin status
