What distro are you using? Did you install it when you re-installed the OS? If you go to the directory where you unpacked the webmin tarball there should be a file named setup.sh. Just execute that file and it will setup webmin for you. I have re-installed webmin be for with no problem.

No, just go to where webmin was install. Do a whereis webmin at the command line. Mine on slack is in the /etc/webmin. All I have to do to start it is /etc/webmin/start.

If whereis isn't finding it, then most likely it's not installed. So either use a tarball to install, or just force the RPM.

Cool

Are you root when you type that? If so, is it possible that you don't have the complete download?

Cool

Ya i tried it both root and as a user and same thing happens hmmm i dont think that i made sure when i downloaded it that it was the biggest file cuz theres 2 different tarball files theres min. and theres normal one and i downloaded the normal one i dunno???? could u maybe point in the right direction to setingup apache without webmin??? i know i have to add a virtual host but does it get added to httpd.conf or commonhttpd.conf and or httpd-perl.conf when i type in apachectl update it updates httpd-perl and i didnt even install that maybe that has something to do with webmin not working cuz before i didnt have that installed???? please help me and if i do add it in to httpd.conf do i put <VirtualHost xx.xxx.xx.xx> ServerName www.domain.com ServerPath /domain </VirtualHost>???? or do i put something else please help with this Thank-you for responding

Grab the RPM from your install CD and force the install, even if it says it's already installed, install it again (won't cause any harm).

Cool

I'm not sure about whereis, but with locate, you have to do an updatedb first before it will locate it. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

I always have to use https://myserver:1000/ to get the webmin login. I don't know if this helps but something to try.
