You shouldn't run install script over again, in case you have setup system.

Simply run:

yum reinstall wbm-virtual-server

After automated udpate Virtualmin stop working.

What do you mean by that? What packages exactly were upgraded?

What is the output of:

yum history

..and then get the last ID and run again:

yum history info ID

Aside from mentioned options, you can use your package manager to rollback to previous state:

yum history rollback ID

However, I am sure, that the first command will reinstall your Virtualmin package properly, and solve your issue.

You definitely should not run again. It is for installation only. It won't do anything good on an existing system, and it warns several times not to do it.

You shouldn't even run yum reinstall wbm-virtual-server (though that's mostly harmless..unlike the install script, which is potentially quite bad)

But, it's not gonna solve this problem. You probably just need to restart Webmin:

# service webmin restart

Also note the issue tracker here is for Virtualmin Professional support. If you'd like to follow up further, start a thread in the forums.

Hmm, that doesn't sound like a bug you're seeing there, and we haven't pushed out a Virtualmin update in a few months now... but just to check one thing before we nudge this over to the Forums --

If you restart Webmin using the command "service webmin restart", do you see any errors or problems?

And then, what happens when trying to log in, do you see any errors or problems there?

If so, what error(s) appear in /var/webmin/miniserv.error?

Lastly -- did this following error begin occurring before the was re-run, or afterwards:

Require virtual-server/ failed : Died at (eval 100) line 1.

Status: Active » Closed (fixed)

Fix by reinstalling the package. Thanks to everyone !
