OK , I had figured out that I had to be logged in as root to copy files to the var/www/html directory , this doesnt make sense to me , if you have to be root , how can you upload files remotely ? , but moving on..... how do I get webmin running , even logged in as root it shows as a running service but I cant access webmin , browser just hangs trying to log into localhost:10000

Please bare with me , I am extreme newb , and I have been at this for hours getting no where real fast , and time is running out !!

Thanks
