After update Webmin thinks the IP address has changed

Installed webmin update via yum from the Webmin repo

Now it produces

Warning! Your system's primary IP address appears to have changed from to Virtual servers using the old address may be unreachable or serve the wrong web content.

I have changed nothing = what is causing this and how to address it ??

I have searched for this common occurrence and most say letting webmin make changes trashes the system which is working

I do not want Webmin to change or adjust anything - I just to turn the message off

Centos 7 fully up to date, 4 core OpenVZ VPS with local nameserver, recently upgraded to php 7.3.5, php-fpm via unix sockets

The message is WRONG

I discovered this in network configuration - the spoaces are needed because this site otherwise puts it all on one line

Name Type IPv4 address Netmask IPv6 address Active

lo Loopback Yes

venet0 OpenVZ From IPv6 discovery Yes

venet0:0 OpenVZ (Virtualmin) Yes

venet0:1 OpenVZ (Virtualmin) Yes

This was from the interfaces "Activate at Boot" TAB - it looks correct

This below is from the "Active Now" TAB

lo Loopback No address configured None ::1 Up

venet0 OpenVZ No address configured None Up

venet0:0 OpenVZ (Virtual) Up

venet0:1 OpenVZ (Virtualmin) Up

I went back to the "change IP" page the error message links to - and changed the IP to the old original IP - and unchecked update DNS and changed it to "virtual servers only selected" and left NONE highlighted so Webmin should see there would be no reason to edit the etc/httpd/httpd.conf file "in theory" to mess with or reason to mess with the etc/named.conf file

The error is gone now however the "Active Now" TAB remains the same - which should be WRONG and possibly a bug
