usermin access stopped working - cannot login

Today I found out that my usermin panel wasn't working. I don't know what happened, and I don't know where to search for the problem.

Virtualmin logins work, but when I try to login on usermin, it always returns to the login page, like if the user/pass is wrong...

Where can I look to search for possible problems?

thank you

does anyone know why this is happenning?

I've tried to create a new mail user, but I can't login with that user too...

I don't know where to look for the error or bug...and didn't want to make a new install...

cookies enabled ? cookies are required for session access.

yes I have cookies enabled. I was able to login perfectly with virtualmin and/or webmin, but not usermin...

I installed it over again from scratch and now it works...hope it stays that way...

but thanks anyway.If it happens again, i'll post it here

The first place to look is always the logs, regardless of what service is causing problems.

In the case of Usermin, you'll look in /var/usermin/miniserv.error and /var/usermin/miniserv.log

With the entries from those during a failed login attempt, we'll be able to guide you to a solution (usually).

Well now it is working fine because I reinstalled everything...

but if anything stops working again, I'll give it a look.

I searched for any related logs in /var/log, but as I found nothing, I didn't know what other places to look for...

thank you anyway :)
