cron.daily missing from webmin's cron listing


Just installed logwatch on a server, and wanted to go into webmin to make sure it was in cron.daily, but webmin isn't showing /etc/cron.daily, although it shows /etc/cron.hourly.

0logwatch does show up in /etc/cron.daily looking on the server, but shouldn't webmin show it too?

I have the same version,
and I see them (it, really) under "Scheduled Cron Jobs":
Code:
/etc/cron.daily/man-db
/etc/cron.daily/popularity-contest
/etc/cron.daily/update-notifier-common
/etc/cron.daily/passwd
/etc/cron.daily/bsdmainutils
/etc/cron.daily/standard
/etc/cron.daily/dpkg
/etc/cron.daily/logrotate
/etc/cron.daily/mlocate
/etc/cron.daily/apt
/etc/cron.daily/aptitude
/etc/cron.daily/apport
/etc/cron.daily/apt-show-versions
after I installed the "The Webmin Cron Jobs module".
Are we on the same page so far?

I think we're on the same page :-)

In webmin, when I go under System/Scheduled Cron Jobs, I only see the following stuff show up
root Yes /usr/lib64/sa/sa1 1 1
root No /usr/lib64/sa/sa1 600 6 &
root Yes /usr/lib64/sa/sa2 -A
root Yes /etc/cron.hourly/0anacron
/etc/cron.hourly/mcelog.cron
root Yes /usr/sbin/raid-check

I don't get it. Webmin's the only thing that ever works right out of the box for me hahaha

and you've verified the directory /etc/cron.daily on the drive outside of webmin, and its contents?

I'm fresh out of ideas today.
Perhaps a good night's sleep will help?
See you tomorrow.

Yeah, I'm not sure. I have the same version on Centos 6.5 that I got from
Code:
wget http://superb-dca2.dl.sourceforge.net/project/webadmin/webmin/1.700/webmin-1.700-1.noarch.rpm
Lacking any real solution, I would remove the rpm by using
Code:
rpm -e --nodeps <package>
where <package> is result of
Code:
rpm -qa | grep webmin
and re-install using the wget link shown.

Yeah, i'm kind of at a loss too. maybe i'll let this one hang in the breeze since it's minor, maybe someone else has seen and conquered this before. Thanks for all the suggestions though.
