Ubuntu Servers :: 9.10 - Webmin Not Working (Page Cannot Be Displayed)
Jan 23, 2010
I installed ubu server 9.10 on my desktop, then I tried to install webmin and I was able to do that too. When I try to connect to webmin I get "page cannot be displayed" so I thought let's change the port...I changed to port 443 as recommended on the website.
Here is the miniserv.conf:
Now I tried connecting using the ip address and the hostname. I also tried with http and https
https://hostname.com:10000 and 443 ... no go.
I have installed ubuntu server 10.04 on a virtualhost. I have installed webmin fine. When I try to access the webpage from my web browser the webpage cant be displayed. I have attached the output of ifconfig.
I recently started with Amazon's EC2, and it's been smooth sailing up to this point. I installed the official EBS AMI ( ami-714ba518 ) for Ubuntu 10.04 and installed LAMP, etc. All this worked fine. However, Webmin is a bust. I cannot fathom why I can't get Webmin working after adding the webmin repo and installing via apt-get. This worked just fine on my physical server, but on Amazon it gives me "Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at xxxxxxx:10000." I made sure my security group allowed port 10000 through to my IP, and MySQL client connections work fine, so that can't be the problem.
I have set up a mapserver, everyting is working except no map is displayed, it looks like a problem with the tmp folder where the images should be writing to. I have searched for a solution and it seems that the user group needs to be www-data, however on my system apache is set as root not www-data and www-data does not exist as a group. Can I simply create this group? if so how?Then I assume I just do the following:
I encountered a a dependency issue when trying to install Webmin on Ubuntu Server Edition 10.04 Beta1.
When you try to install webmin, libmd5-perl is not available in any of the lucid repositories:
I resolved the dependency prob by adding the following repository to my /etc/apt/sources.list: deb [url]
Then I did a sudo apt-get update then sudo apt-get install and libmd5-perl installed fine along with webadmin. BTW. I got a GPG error when doing a apt=get update because I did not import the public key for the debian repos I used to get libdm5-perl, which doesn't matter to me as I commented out the repos once I got libmd5-perl installed.
I've tried untinstalling and reinstalling the package for ampache.
I still cannot get localhost/ampache to display in my browser. I can't even get localhost to display in my browser. I've tried checking around in config files to see if i have ports open for listening. (i'm a noob at all of this)
My router has the port open that i specified. on code - service apache2 start i get:
(..Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address 192.168.1.65:8000 no listening sockets available, shutting down
I can't find any other config files. I don't know what else to do with the amapche installation. (which included an install of mysql-server package, even tho i NEVER got a prompt to enter in root passwd for the mysql db.)
I have installed squid proxy server on cent os 5.5 the problem i am facing is with some websitesthis issue arose suddenly the issue is when i access certain sites then i get page cannot be displayed but when i refresh it it displays the page. again when i close the browser and start again same issue. What could be the reason how can i solve it
When I try to start Apache2 (apachectl start) the command prompt returns right away. But when I check the processes (ps ax) I can't find httpd. And when I try to hit the server from a browser I get "the page cannot be displayed" error.
I have duel boot (XP & Jaunty). I have installed Jaunty in one of my parition through wubi installer. Problem is, though my network connection shows active, I am unable to connect internet via firefox browser or any other browser.
1. I have plugged in ethernet wired connection.
2. I have single network connection (wired connection1)
I have apache httpd server on my Fedora 10I got 2 problems:First : I copied the web page files to its Document Root <var/www/html> & Disabled the default web page. But when I visit http:/localhost ，it shows up the list of files in <var/www/html> as if a ftp server browsed in web page. So how can I set http://localhost load my default web page index.html ?Second :I want to set up a web server on Internet through my router . I applied for DDNS account & input it into router correctly . I set virtual host in server to redirect any access from port 80 to 192.168.1.2:80 in LAN . Just for in case , I also download and running the DDNS software & installed it on PC 192.168.1.2 in LAN . My DDNS provider is oray.cn . It's a Chinese server provider . I don't think there is anything wrong with oray.cn . But if you need its information just visit oray.cn (Google can translate it for you). So I want to know did I miss something to set up a web server in this kind of situation
I have just done a fresh install of server 11.04 32bit.I installed webmin. I can hit webmin , but it doesn't take my login. I tried with both my users but it refuses to log me in as if my username or password is wrong.
Webmin running two websites from one server, i've made a second virtual server for my second site including its own document root with it's own index.html file ,but for some odd reason they both run the same site. And i use a Static ip address.
I want to make a daily backup of my websites from ubuntu server over ftp to another server I own. Backup schedule and process works, the problem is backup restore. Winrar says: The file is corrupt, 7-zip crashes.
Backup archive looks ok (the same size as original folder) and you can also extract it ignoring the error by winrar. But the extracted folder only contains one or two subfolder and one file(usually image) and that's all.
If I try to restore from Webmin it doesn't report any error, and it looks like restore worked. But restored files are nowhere.
I've got an old computer around that I've put Ubuntu server 8.04 on.At the moment, this is only a little hobby of mine purely for educational purposes. (Great for learning Linux!) After using this tutorial:URL...for setting up a LAMP-server, I'm trying to figure out is whether or not setting up a root-password is necessary or not. I think the tutorial is really great for a newbie, but it consistently uses su instead of sudo.I'm aware of the fact that setting a root-password isn't recommended in the documentation, but don't you need a root-account to be able to run tools such as webmin?
i try to access my webmin but it give me "This webpage is not available." now, webmin is useless for me if i want to uninstall webmin, is some other application will affected (like apache, mysql, etc) ?
I am planning to setup my own webserver using webmin, but from what i've read i apprently need two harddrives. one for the OS & one for the data. can i just partition my harddrive into two because i dont have another hdd lying around. i also just want to note that this is my first time trying to do something like this sooo I rly want to try to set up my own server . As a side note ill list the specs of the comp i plan to use as a server. Pentium 4 2.8ghz, 1gb DDR, 80GB 7200RPM HDD.
I am using ubuntu 10.04.3 LTS and I have webmin 1.560 installed but when I look at Un-used Modules its showing system log is there and when I click on it I get this: The syslog configuration file /etc/syslog.conf was not found on your system. Maybe syslog is not installed, or a newer version like syslog-ng is in use, or the module configuration is incorrect.
i'm not able to play music at all. videos videos seem to crash my browser and using either rhythmbox or banshee they crash too.i ran rhythmbox by typing sudo rhythmbox and tried to play a file and it displayed a pop-up window saying that my autioaudiosink element is missing and the terminal displayed this:
code: (rhythmbox:8415): rhythmbox-warning **: unable to grab media player keys: could not get owner of name 'org.gnome.settingsdaemon': no such name warning: unhandled message: interface=org.freedesktop.dbus.introspectable, path=/, member=introspect
Instead of XAMPP or LAMP, I installed a local web server to my Ubuntu 10.04. Apache and phpmyadmin works well.
I copied the files of my Joomla website to /var/www folder. When I go to administrator panel, it works. But when I type in the browser "http://localhost/[folder_name], a blank page appears and nothing else.
I have had webmin running previously but i just recently installed Unbuntu server and i am now trying to install webmin. after typing this to install webmin sudo apt-get install webmin it started doing its thing and then it halts.
Giving me the following message: "Package webmin is not available, but is referred to by another package. this may mean that the package is missing, had been obsoleted , or is only available from another source."
The first thing i did after installing webmin was edit the sources.list
Then i tpyed sudo nano sources.list I uncommented everything with "deb" in front of it
I also uncommented
I then typed this sudo wget [url]
After getting that i typed this apt-get install perl libnet-ssleay-perl openssl libauthen-pam-perl libpam-runtime libio-pty-perl libmd5-perl
I've been trying to figure this out... What command does the system use to display this at login:
System information as of Fri Oct 1 08:35:54 CDT 2010
System load: 0.28 Usage of /: 10.8% of 17.89GB Memory usage: 51% Swap usage: 3% Processes: 112 Users logged in: 1 IP address for eth0: <ip.address>
It's not uname, free, top, df, uptime, etc... Also doesn't appear to be anything in /proc that I've found. Anyone know what it is? I want to grab its output as part of a script. I could use other commands I suppose, but this system info output is neat and concise.
I'm a bit of a Nooob to Virtual hosting. On my internal network 192.168.1.x I have a dns server running bind9 My DNS / web server is 192.168.1.3 I have succeeded in getting [URL] to resolve and it goes to my web page in /var/www/ Now I want to get say [URL] to go to /var/www/music/
1. What's the best way to go about this? 2. Can I configure it using webmin or do I just do it the old fashioned way through a terminal? 3. I tried virtual hosts via the following method
Added to /etc/apache2/sites-available/default NameVirtualHost 192.168.1.3:80 Then created /etc/apache2/sites-available/music.7rocks.com <VirtualHost 192.168.1.3:80> ServerName music.7rocks.com ServerAlias music.7rocks.com
I recently upgraded a Ubuntu server from version 8.04 to 10.04 and after a reboot the webmin and syslog-ng server do not start at boot anymore. I can start them manually by doing /etc/init.d/webmin start and /etc/init.d/syslong-ng start and everything works fine until I root again. Granted this machine is rarely rebooted but when it is, I don't want to have to remember to start these services. I have tried a full removal of syslog-ng and reinstall but to no avail. The entries are in the rc directories like they should and the links are valid.
I'm having trouble with Webmin. I got it up and running. However, I was changing the 'listen on port' to something other than port# 10000. I made sure ufw was open to the tcp requests on my new webmin port only. UDP has been disabled. I type in my browser my ip address with the new port, and I get 'problem loading page' now. How can I see the tcp port webmin is set from a terminal on the host computer? Do I goto a webmin folder and change a .conf file?
I just made a script to install a Transparent Proxy with DHCP Server, Content Filtering and Webmin. It installs and configures the modules and starts them. I can use from two to five interfaces (eth0, eth1, eth2, eth3 & eth4). I've tested in 8.04 to 9.10 and works fine. It does not configures BIND and IPTABLES, just install all the modules needed for a transparent proxy, and configures DHCP, SQUID, DANSGUARDIAN and WEBMIN for Ubuntu. I did it because mostly all configurations I do are transparent proxies.
What does: 1. Installs many packages needed for transparent proxies, and webmin. Also installs perl modules needed. 2. Configures default Squid settings for transparent proxies, and a better Dansguardian content filtering for public access. 3. Configures and fixes Webmin DHCP and Dansguardian modules to work on Ubuntu. 4. Configures DHCP Server subnets.
What doesn't: 1. IPTABLES and BIND. You must configure both manually. IPTABLES can be configured with Firewall Builder or other firewall tool. BIND can be configured using Webmin or the CLI. 2. Configures /etc/network/interfaces. You must configure all network interfaces correctly. Any mistake can screw the automatic configuration. 3. Dansguardian Blacklists. You must use your prefered blacklists. I use URLBigBlacklist with a modified script to work on Ubuntu (downloaded from Danguardians' Extras and fixed up to work on Ubuntu). 4. Check the script if there's something missing.
I've got my first EC2/cloud instance of Ubuntu up and running. This is my first time really dealing with the server edition. I've loaded Apache, Tomcat, PostgreSQL, and Webmin. I've got a public IP on the instance and it is working. I've opened, for now, ports 80, 8080, 443, and 10000 to 0.0.0.0/0.
I cannot get into Tomcat Manager or Webmin at all through a browser. For Tomcat, I've restarted, stop/started, and verified that Tomcat is running. I installed Webmin all through apt-get commands so any dependencies should have been installed (first time doing it this way), but cannot get to the login screen. But if I just go to the IP, Apache goes to the "It Works." splash page. Did I miss some set up? Is there an internal firewall in Ubuntu Server edition that needs to be set?
I'm installing a server to act as a firewall between a local network and internet. I've installed Firestarter becaused it worked straitgh away (it seems that FS is configuring the routing as well). I've tried to remove it, and then I lost the access from LAN to Internet. (I don't know why -perhaps the routing is disabled then- , so I prefer to keep it).
The problem is that Webmin Bandwidth Monitor (bandwidthd) is not logging anything when FS is active. Does someone has an idea on how I could make it work? I've tried cacti and some other stuff, but it is far too complicated for me.
Initially when I upgraded to Lucid I uninstalled openJDK and switched back to sun-java5 packages due to some application support limitations. Now I have to upgrade to sun-java6- packages. I removed the sun-java5 packages and installed the sun-java6 packages. Including the sun-java6-plugin.
I can see the plugin in aboutlugins in Firefox 3.6.10 however nothing (like webex or applets) related to java works. As a workaround I have used the Icedtea plugin which comes with open JDK and that seems to work. However I want to get the sun-java6-plugin working.
Two servers, one is RHEL 4, and the other is RHEL 5. They are both on the same subnet, one is 10 the other is 11. I added the Webmin rule to the iptables config file but for some reason, the RHEL 4 server, I can access Webmin but the RHEL 5 server I can not. I checked the iptables file and they are the same for both servers, except two rules which are for other ports.
I'm reading about the iptables and had a problem when I manually added the port 10000 entry after the REJECT entry, but wondering if I need to move it up higher or maybe there's another possible block?
I created a new virtual host in Apache using Webmin and am having trouble getting it to work. When I created it, I opted to create the config file as a "New file under virtual servers directory /etc/apache2/sites-available". So now I have a default config file /etc/apache2/sites-available/default and a new one created by Webmin at /etc/apache2/sites-available/webmin.1412323.conf. It seems like the settings in that new Webmin config file aren't being picked up by Apache -- when I try and browse to mywebsite.com it shows my root /var/www folder, not the subdirectory /var/www/mywebsite.
Is there a way I can tell Apache to include the new Webmin config file for the virtual host or should I just copy the directives into the default file at /etc/apache2/sites-available/default? It seems like Webmin should automatically configure Apache to work with any newly generated config files.
