    I just finished installing my first Ubuntu server box using the instructions on http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_ubuntu_6.10. Then I installed Webmin using the instructions at http://ictfreak.wordpress.com/2006/09/25/how-to-install-webmin-on-ubuntu/. But now when I try and use Webmin it can't find most of the files it needs. For example the Apache configuration file. Did I do something wrong during the install? And how do I find these files? I have tried searching for them with Webmin's file manager but no luck.

    Thanks for the help.

    I was able to find the Apache stuff but now I am trying to get the DHCP server part working. This is the error that I am getting.

    The DHCP server /usr/local/webmin/dhcpd does not appear to be correct version. Webmin only supports ISC DHCPD versions 2 to 3.

    Also if I try to do a manual restart of the DHCP server from the cli I get a failed error.

    I have run the webmin upgrade forcing the install. That is everything I can think of and I am still getting that error.

    Any ideas
    Thanks for the help

    As far as I know, the referenced tutorials do not describe the installation of a dhcp server. You would need to add that to your server sofware packages
    Code:
    apt-get install dhcp3-server

    I finally got an error while trying to start dhcp

    invoke-rc.d: initscript dhcp3-server, action "start" failed.

    Please log in on the shell as root and run
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/dhcp3-server start
    You might have to modify the DHCP configuration before the DHCP server will start. Take a look at this tutorial: http://www.howtoforge.com/dhcp_server_linux_debian_sarge (should work for Ubuntu as well).

    Ok I went to the web site and edited the config file to look like this

    option domain-name-servers 24.247.24.53;

    default-lease-time 86400;
    max-lease-time 604800;

    authoritative;

    subnet 192.186.0.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
    range 192.168.0.200 192.168.0.229;
    option subnet-mask 255.255.255.0;
    option brodcast-address 192.168.0.255;
    option routers 192.168.0.1;
    }

    and when I tried to start up dhcp again this is what I got

    [email protected]:/home/jacob# /etc/init.d/dhcp3-server start
    dhcpd self-test failed. Please fix the config file.
    The error was:
    [email protected]:/home/jacob#

    Here's mine (without comments):

    Code:
    #
    ddns-update-style none;
    option domain-name "tiempo.loc";
    option domain-name-servers ns0.tiempo.loc, adslgw.tiempo.loc;
    default-lease-time 86400;
    max-lease-time 86400;
    authoritative;
    log-facility local7;
    subnet 172.16.3.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
      range 172.16.3.100 172.16.3.150;
      option routers 172.16.3.254;
    }
