I was just building a brand new FreeBSD 7.2 box (core I7 with AMD64 version. First port installed was webmin after a clean build from iso and added the webmin_enable="YES" to rc.conf. The webmin install gave me a Permission denied error while running the postinstall scripts, and when I run /usr/local/etc/rc.d/webmin start I get a "Starting Webmin" message and a "Pre-loaded Webmin core" message.
But.... Can't connect to it via web client (from a machine that can ping the new server), and webmin doesn't appear to be one of the running processes, and the webmin port number I'm using is not being used on the server..
I did basic checks on ethernet and made sure firewall wasn't blocking anything.
Wasn't expecting a clean install to die. Always worked like a champ in the past.
This was a quick project, and I didn't have time to seriously dig in yet to find out what died. Has anyone already had this problem and solved it? First time I played with FreeBSD 7.2... is there a known script problem?
