Installing Webmin On Ubuntu Feisty Fawn (7.04) - Page 3
Attempting to start Webmin mini web server..
Thunderbirds Are Go ... Or At Least Webmin Is
Being the paranoid person I am I rebooted my linux box in order to see there were no errors after the install had completed. It also ensures that the service is starting automatically after a server restart. For me, the reboot went successfully. For you it will hopefully do the same. However, if you are on a live system ... do not reboot unless you want the wrath of users to fall on you hard.
Broadcast message from email@example.com (/dev/pts/1) at 7:05 ... The system is going down for reboot NOW!
Alternatively you can check that webmin is running correctly (without rebooting) by running the following command:
sudo /etc/init.d/webmin status
Which should show something like
webmin (pid 4326) is running
To check it is listening on the correct port (23646 in this case):
sudo netstat -tap
tcp 0 0 *:23646 *:* LISTEN 4326/perl
