SOLVED: Webmin Not Installing

Postby gwynap » Tue Oct 19, 2021 10:18 am

I'm building a new Amahi 11 HDA (from minimal-CD) and installed Webmin. The installation seemed to go ok: no errors in the dashboard or in the amahi-app-installer.log. But when I try to open Webmin from the dashboard, I get "This site can't be reached".

There is nothing under /var/hda/web-apps/webmin/html, is that expected? No Webmin service is running. Any ideas on how to debug this further? Thanks very much.

Hello,
There is nothing under /var/hda/web-apps/webmin/html, is that expected?
That is correct, nothing should be there. It's installed from an RPM and located elsewhere on the server.

Many services do not appear in the dashboard, so the service can be running and you not know unless you check from the command line.

You can also check the status by doing:

Code: Select all

sudo service webmin status
You can substitute restart for status to restart the service.

Have you rebooted? Sometimes it does not start correctly and a reboot fixes it.

Hope that helps.

For some reason the service was stopped. Restarting it fixed the problem. Thanks!!

No problem. I thought that might be the case.

Marking as resolved.
