    I am running a new windows 2003 server install with bind and apache.  I wanted to use webmin to easily admin since I use it on my linux box.  I keep runnin into an error in the setup.pl script that says;
    "Failed to create temp directory "directory path"

    I have tried changing the temp path, it still didnt work

    I tried modifying the setup.pl file as other did in this forum and that made it worse

    Any help would be greatly apprecieted.

    Thanx

     
    • I had the same problem (and a few others)
      1) I changed my TEMP and TMP env variables to c:\temp
      2) In web-lib-funcs.pl, line 122, change c:\temp to c:\\temp
      3) In setup.pl, I commented out lines 230 to 232 which failed miserably no matter what I tried.

      And now I've got webmin on M$-Win2K3

      Cheers,

      Emmanuel
