General :: Fail Webmin Install - E - Package Webmin Has No Installation Candidate
Apr 6, 2010
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 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 am trying to install webmin on my Debian virtual machine and it is not working.
Here is what i am following [url]
I ad the 2 lines to /etc/apt/sources.list I ad the key ok But when i do apt-get install webmin it goes through everything ok as far as i can see, except when it gets to " **initializing cache. This may take a while **Setting up webmin (1.550) ... " It is like it just stops doing anything, it just hangs there.
If i reboot and try "dpkg --configure -a" it starts at the same place "Setting up webmin" but nothing is happening.
I have Ubuntu7.10 installed on my machine. I am getting some errors installing some rpm packages. I found the error message "rpm command not found".does it mean that i need to istall rpm package manager? right? I have a lot of .rpm packages to install.
and when i try "apt-get install rpm " , the following error occurs
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package rpm is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source E: Package rpm has no installation candidate
My current situation involves me having webmin (virtualmin) installed on my current centos server. Im using virtualmin gpl and my users/hosted sites are not very smart when it comes to making a website. They can upload sites via FTP and manage minor things but thats about it. What i want to do is make a couple of scripts using the terminal style that can do a quick auto install of Joomla. The command will run as the user who is executing it in WebMin.
Here is the Locations of the items in transfer.
I will have 2 premade sets; one Joomla SourceCode-FileSystem ; A Joomla MySql database to go along with it.
Heres what I need to do;
Variable: TheUsername = The WebMin user as described above
1. Check to make sure File /home/TheUsername/public_html/index.php dose not exist. If dose then cancel the install.
2. Copy files /NoodleServerFiles/AutoInstall/Joomla/ to /home/TheUsername/public_html/
3. Create a Database Named: TheUsername-Joomla
4. Enable TheUsername to beable to read and write to it.
5. Inport /NoodleServerFiles/AutoInstall/Databases/Joomla.sql to that database
6. Edit the file /home/TheUsername/public_html/configuration.php on specific lines Example: Line10: DB_user: TheUsername
7. Save it.
8. Display Text in the Terminal Command saying "Success in creating your website. Go look!"
I have a dummy server set up in which I am trying to install webmin (which I have done several times in the past and remb it being straightforward and pretty simple!) however when trying to install I keep getting errors.
I install all the perl packages as required :- sudo apt-get install perl libnet-ssleay-perl openssl libauthen-pam-perl libpam-runtime libio-pty-perl libmd5-perl After downloading webmin I try and install it:- sudo dpkg -i webmin_ 1.530 _all.deb
This is where I encounter errors regarding apt-show-versions saying that it is not installed.I try and install it but an error appears stating that apt-show-versions is not installed. So I try and install apt-show-versions and that fails as it states that there is libapt package missing too. When I try to force install both - unable to fetch some archives but maybe run apt-get update or fix missing....It just seems like I am going around in circles (as I have run apt-get update and have run the commands as root...)
I'm attempting to install Webmin in Endian I download the tar.gz file and ran setup.sh and it says it is installed, however it doesn't let me go to the webpage it says. I get a timeout error. I'm using the current version of endian and webmin.
I installed webmin on many servers under my control and decided to automate the job. Here is a shell script to automatically add WebMin repo to yum and install it. You can use "nano -w webmin_install.sh" to create a script somewhere, copy there the source, save, then allow execution using "chmod u+x webmin_install.sh" and then use "./webmin_install.sh" to execute it.
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 have installed LAMP. Configured acc. to documentation. I have installed webmin and able to access it. Configured Apache2 and able to access default website www.url.com from public network. But now when I am trying to run [URL] as alias, I am really confused because whenever I type [URL] in web browser, it shows me webmin file instead of GUI. I followed this documentation: [URL]. Anyone have webmin running as website?
I want to install Webmin on a dedicated remote server. I keep reading different blogs/tutorials etc about installing webmin on Ubunto server 10.10 but it seems too easy to be true. There is never any mention of requirements etc. I did read that even perl isn't needed pre install now and will install with webmin.But do i need to install lamp etc first or does it pull these in when Webmin its installed?
I recently installed Ubuntu server 9.04. It appears to be functioning correctly in that I can acces it from other Windows machines ony my network. I installed Webmin to remotely administer this server, however I cannot connect using Webmin from my other machines. I am only running Samba on this server at the present time.
I attempted to access the webmin conf file at /etc/webmin/miniserv.conf but permission wasa denied, evenas root.
I have fedora 13 (with samba) and XP on Vbox (same LAN). Installed webmin on the fedora machine and created a shared folder (/home/myshare). stopped iptables, gave the folder chmod 777 and tried reaching the folder from the XP with no success.
From the posts relevant to postfix I could not find the particular combination of issues I'm facing. Any pointers or references to posts will be greatly helpful. I have CentOS server running Postfix which was recently moved into my house running over TW cable (Austin RoadRunner). In Webmin -> Postfix Mail Server -> General Options - Other General Options - 'Send outgoing mail via host' (which is the relayhost) is set to:
I expected the relay to reflect this in the log but it doesn't When I send an email I see this in /var/log/maillog
Jul 21 17:17:04 cromagnon sendmail: p6LMAjlu014853: email@example.com, ctladdr=root (0/0), delay=00:06:19, xdelay=00:06:18, mailer=relay, pri=30049, relay=[127.0.0.1] [127.0.0.1], dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred: Connection timed out with [127.0.0.1] I basically *all* mail from all domains on this server to go through the relayhost. I understand there are a million caveats but I wish someone could help me with the basics.
BTW I've also tried to set the relayhost to
however the log still shows . . .relay=root@localhost . .
Whenever I try to take backup from webmin I get following error message. Starting backup of module configuration files to /Applications/backup.tar.gz .. .. failed! TAR failed : I don't understand meaning of this error.
I'd like to use a webmin to execute scripts as the picture. When I press "Stop friendly" button, it will execute the script that is located at /home/kenzo/stopfriendly.sh or it will execute /home/kenzo/stopserver.sh when I press "Stop" button.
I am running a video script on my server and I am very new to running a dedicated server and commands. Most of our site was setup but other and someone has broke something and no one seems to know how to fix.
Here is the issue. We run a script that uses these requirements

Now our server guy ran a update inside webmin for debian and now our videos still convert but wont make thumbs. Here is what he did.
Now updating libsmbclient ..
Now the AVS script wont make thumbs and webmin still wants to do 3 more updates that get unmet dependencies errors. Here they are when we try to run another update.
Building complete list of updates ..
Now what we need to do is either undo the update he already did or maybe get the one its asking for now to work but not sure which one will fix our thumb generating problem? Here is the error in the log file of the AVS script.
