#2119 Webmin disappeared after reboot

1.210

My webmin 1.210 installation disappears every time I
reboot the server; new installation works fine until
next day.
I use Linspire 5.0, Generic Linux 2.6.
W-1.210 is an upgrade from 1.200; those files are still
there, but everything from webmin 1.210 is gone.
Thanks

    Sounds like you have Webmin installed into a directory like
    /tmp , which is cleared at boot time. To install elsewhere,
    you should run :
    cd /tmp
    tar xvzf webmin-1.210.tar.gz
    cd webmin-1.210
    ./setup.sh /usr/local/webmin

    Hello,
    I did exactly what you described, but the problem is still
    there;
    I can find all sorts of webmin-1.200 files and folders, but
    no w-1.210 !!
    The only difference with the first time is the tar command,
    that says xvzf instead of xf; both don't work
    what's wrong ?
