Hi when installing webmin on my Ubuntu 12.04 lts server or debian 7 (tried both) i get a error:

Voorbereiden om webmin 1.580 te vervangen (door webmin_1.650_all.deb) ...
Uitpakken van vervangende webmin ...
Instellen van webmin (1.650) ...
/var/lib/dpkg/info/webmin.postinst: 58: /var/lib/dpkg/info/webmin.postinst: cannot create /etc/webmin/uninstall.sh: Directory nonexistent
chmod: kan geen toegang krijgen tot â/etc/webmin/uninstall.shâ: Bestand of map bestaat niet
grep: /etc/webmin/miniserv.conf: Bestand of map bestaat niet
Webmin install complete. You can now login to http://h2214292:/
as root with your root password, or as any user who can use sudo
to run commands as root.

I tried all kind of installation methods. Directly from commandline, reportory, as sudo ...
But everytime i get the same error. Even after clean server install.

    Hi there,

    i get the same error message:

    Voorbereiden om webmin 1.1650 te vervangen (door webmin_1.650_all.deb) ...
    Uitpakken van vervangende webmin ...
    Instellen van webmin (1.650) ...

    Webmin install complete. You can now login to http://h2218018.seratoserver.net:/
    as root with your root password, or as any user who can use sudo
    to run commands as root.

    i changed the language to english but thats not the answer

    the /etc/webmin folder isn't made by the installation script

    i have Ubuntu 12.04 server+plesk11.5 on my vps server

    hope you can find the answer to my question

    tnx patrick

    Can you attach the contents of the file /tmp/webmin-setup.out , which gets created after a failed install? It will tell me why exactly the install process is failing.

    i login to my server with the root user and this is the webmin-setup.out.

    i isn't located in the /tmp folder but in the root folder

    Ok, now we are getting somewhere! What does the command "id" output on your system when using the Dutch language?

     
  • patrick van den helm

    root@h2218018:~# id
    UID=0(root) GID=0(root) groepen=0(root)

    Ok, this will be fixed in the next Webmin release (which should be out in a week or two).
