    Hi,

    when I attempt to create a new user I get the error 'Module webmin does not exist'.

    This pops up in a couple of other places as well. Tried to uninstall/reinstall but that didn't fix it.

    In my /etc/webmin/miniserv.config I see that there are references to different directories:

    root=/tmp/webmin-1.590
    mimetypes=/tmp/webmin-1.590/mime.types

    Everything else is under

    env_WEBMIN_CONFIG=/etc/webmin
    env_WEBMIN_VAR=/var/webmin

    Setting root and mimetypes to  /etc/webmin  makes things just worse, I get Perl script errors.

    Trying   ps auxw | grep miniserv 

    shows me

    /usr/bin/perl     /tmp/webmin-1.590/miniserv.pl    /etc/webmin/miniserv.conf

    Frankly, I'm lost and any advice would be much appreciated.

    I'm running  ubuntu-12.04
