Another user on the forum (Poonam) reported that existing webmin config files are not updated on an upgrade..

would that explain why on upgrading to 1.43 (on a system that has had many webmin versions over the years) I still do not get the option to stop (re)installation of deleted modules ?

I had thought it was because i was using a skin based on gehrigal theme.

1.43 on Linux (FC/Centos4/Centos5)

    Updating of config files is never done by Webmin - it always assumes that your current settings on the Module Config pages are correct, as you might have manually modified them to match your custom install of Apache or whatever.

    As for not re-installing deleted modules, sadly this isn't possible when using the RPM and Debian packages - those formats don't support partial installs. But unless you are really really low on disk space, it is better to simply hide modules you don't want to use at Webmin -> Webmin Users -> your login.

    can the unix.tar.gz v rpm/deb capabilities be flagged on the website/wiki then.

    if rpm cannot do partial upgrades then you need to remove the option from the scheduled upgrade page...
    ...
    Install modules that are not currently installed
    Update non-core modules as well.....

    The 'Install modules that are not currently installed' and 'Update non-core modules as well' settings aren't related to whole Webmin upgrades though, only the updates of modules.
