  • Help In Setting Up Webmin + Virtualmin On My LAMP VPS

    I have an above average experience in shared web hosting and just a little in Linux, so i might need a little hand holding on this.

    I decided to subscribe to a LAMP VPS account majorly to save cost and to have a little experience on how to set up a VPS server.

    My first task was to set up Webmin + Virtualmin on the server

    First, I attempted to update the debian 5 OS using the ff command:

    apt-get update
    I got a series of errors saying something about source or was it repository not found.

    I went ahead anyway to try to install webmin:

    dpkg --install webmin_1.580_all.deb
    Got an error, something about dependencies. I typed in the ff:

    apt-get install perl libnet-ssleay-perl openssl libauthen-pam-perl libpam-runtime libio-pty-perl apt-show-versions python
    No luck. I had to wrap things up.

    Basically, i need to someone to spell things out in layman's terms on how to install Webmin + Virtualmin On My LAMP Debian 5 VPS server

    Hi there,
    We had an issue with our Debian repositories recently that should now be cleared up. I would recommend retrying those steps using apt-get. Hope that helps!!

          It's been fixed on the host level, you can try it again. If for some reason the apt-get update doesn't work, try issuing the below command to manually update the repositories.

          sed -i 's/\/\/\([0-9a-zA-Z\.\-]*\)\//\/\/\//' /etc/apt/sources.list
