    I am a newbie with webmin, bur I like to know, if it is possible to install webmin over a running samba server and ldap server. will webmin take over the whole existing configs? or will it be like this, that webmin is going to replace them?

    thanks a lot

      webmin only reads the configs, doenst create/replace or change config files...

      Go ahead and make a backup of your config files anyway.

      As far as the samba config file, you should be able to find the smb.conf file in your system, not sure about SUSE, but i think the path should be /etc/samba/smb.conf

      its only a precaution, instaling webming would not touch the file, it will only ready it to diplay it once you log in to webmin

      as far as the LDAP i have no idea of what to look for, but again, it will be the same kind of deal...

      hopefully someone can tell you what config files you could backup.
