Installed webmin 1.080 on an AIX 5.1 server, and get
the following error when I try to start webmin:

CBCibmprf07:root:/opt/webmin-1.080
# /etc/webmin/start
Starting Webmin server in /opt/webmin-1.080
unix dgram connect: Connection refused at /opt/webmin-
1.080/miniserv.pl line 190
getservbyname failed for tcp at /opt/webmin-
1.080/miniserv.pl line 193
udp connect: nobody listening at /opt/webmin-
1.080/miniserv.pl line 193
no connection to syslog available at /opt/webmin-
1.080/miniserv.pl line 193

Get the same error if I install webmin 1.1.

Any ideas why I am getting this error?

I do have webmin 1.080 running successfully on other
AIX 5.1 systems.

    This is almost certainly caused by your system not running a syslog server,
    or webmin not being able to contact it. Edit /etc/webmin/miniserv.conf and
    remove the syslog=1 line.
