thanks, you were both right, the virtualmin sourcces had been uncommented by an OS upgrade (from ubuntu 8.04 to 10.04) and I choose the webmin theme instead of the virtualmin theme.

I suspect that this server had not been updated for some time..

btw, I get some warnings when I restart apache2 along the lines: has no VirtualHosts has no VirtualHosts

can I avoid them?

It's possible that you just changed back to the default webmin theme somehow.

To fix this, go to Webmin -> Webmin Configuration -> Webmin Themes, and select
"Virtualmin Framed Theme".
