Centos 8 Virtualmin installation script fail

Hello,

I am trying to run the script http://software.virtualmin.com/gpl/scripts/install.sh) to install it on Centos 8 and it crashes. The reason is that it tries to install an older version of EPEL than what I already have installed.

Please find part of the log:

Installing virtualmin-release package: Success.
[2020-02-09 01:16:36 EET] [DEBUG] Phase 2 of 3: Installation

Made it here...why?

Hi,

CentOS 8 support is only going to be released with next Webmin and install script releases. There are workarounds to install it right now but it's unofficial and requires more technical knowledge.

Thanks! Is there any release date confirmed?

No, there is no exact date but many people have been asking recently! We are trying to make it as soon as possible.

There are few small bugs left to fix on Webmin side and we are ready to go.

It should be very soon.

Hi, Any changes that will come up recently? I ask because it is the same mistake yet. Thank you!

It's been fixed locally a while ago - it will come out as soon as we will be able to recover after data loss and rebuild needed packages.

Sorry about that. I hope for days to have this fixed.
