Vitrualmin broken after 1y

Ive got a copy of Virutalmin that has been running fine for about 1y but now its just broken itself. There are lots of wierd UI issue but most importantly...

1) When I try to update a site I get this error """ Re-loading Webmin .. .. failed! Failed to open PID file at /usr/libexec/webmin/ line 960 """

2) When I click on Website Options I get this error """ HTTP/1.0 500 Perl execution failed Server: MiniServ/0.01 Date: Fri, 30 Nov 2007 21:24:15 GMT Content-type: text/html Connection: close Error - Perl execution failed

Undefined subroutine &virtual_server::get_domain_php_children called at /usr/libexec/webmin/virtual-server/edit_phpmode.cgi line 29. """

Just did a manual yum update on bangalow the result I get is:

""" Dependencies Resolved Transaction Listing: Update: wbt-virtual-server-theme.noarch 2:5.0-1 - virtualmin-universal

Performing the following to resolve dependencies: Install: webmin.noarch 0:1.380-1 - virtualmin-universal Total download size: 16 M Is this ok [y/N]: y Downloading Packages: (1/2): webmin-1.380-1.noa 100% |=========================| 14 MB 00:03 (2/2): wbt-virtual-server 100% |=========================| 2.1 MB 00:00 Running Transaction Test Finished Transaction Test Transaction Test Succeeded Running Transaction Operating system is Redhat Enterprise Linux warning: /etc/pam.d/webmin saved as /etc/pam.d/webmin.rpmorig warning: /etc/sysconfig/daemons/webmin saved as /etc/sysconfig/daemons/webmin.rpmorig Installing: webmin 100 % done 1/3 error: unpacking of archive failed on file /usr/libexec/webmin/blue-theme/unauthenticated: cpio: unlink Webmin does not appear to be installed on your system.

Now it is totally stuffed. As soon as I login I get this

""" Failed to open /etc/webmin/module.infos.cache for writing : Bad file descriptor """

This is a RHEL4 machine and up until about a month ago it was fine.

How do I get support for something like this. Im happy to pay but The support on the site seems to be for new installs only? is there any place to lodge a ticket?

Howdy Tom,

This one looks ugly--not really related to Virtualmin or Webmin--looks like some kind of brokenness in the RPM database.

Not sure what's happening here, but why don't you send over login details for this system to, and I'll drop in and see if I can figure out what is happening.
