Had the latest version of webmin working fine on
Mandrake 9, even after a number of reboots. Then, for
some reason, did a reboot today and webmin wont
start. Tried a manual restart and get this message:

[root@webserver init.d]# service -f webmin
Stopping Webmin server in /usr/libexec/webmin
cat: /var/run/webmin/miniserv.pid: No such file or
directory
kill: usage: kill [-s sigspec | -n signum | -sigspec] [pid |
job]... or kill -l [sigspec]
Starting Webmin server in /usr/libexec/webmin
Failed to open SSL key
at /usr/libexec/webmin/miniserv.pl line 171.

Any suggestions/ideas appreciated.

Thanks,
Tony

    What if you just run the commands :
    killall -9 miniserv.pl
    /etc/webmin/start
    at the command line?
