HI,

I just installed Webmin 1.020 on RedHat 8.0. During
install, the error message flashes by which says:
Failed to determine Webmin root from SERVER_ROOT or
SCRIPT_FILENAME

Installation finishes with no other errors, the server
starts up OK. When I try to access the URL, I get the
same message on the website that opens. I have no
problems running Apache on this box and get no other
errors on boot. I searched for a fix as best as I
could, but found nothing except references to the code
itself where this error seems to reference a failure to
install a font something-or-other.

Wish I could offer more info, but I'm brand-new to
Linux and NOT a guru.

Any ideas/suggestions?

Jeff

    That almost sounds like part of webmin is missing .. are you
    sure the download was complete? If you install the RPM
    version, it should warn you about that kind of thing ..
