Virtualmin virtual-server module version 5.07 released

Howdy all,

I've rolled out Virtualmin virtual-server module version 5.07. This is a bugfix release to fix a handful of PHP-FPM and Let's Encrypt related issues.

As always, let us know if you run into any bugs.

My centos7 server is fine after update. Did notice deb and ubuntu have different version update.

Try not using the authentic theme.

Sorry folks. My fault. I updated my roll-up scripts with the 5.06 release, and it had some bugs...I thought I'd fixed the bug previously. But, I missed a, same problem happened again. It should be fixed with the 5.07.gpl-2 release.

Sorry for the inconvenience, again. I'm gonna get these damned build scripts right some day.


Check out the forum guidelines!

since the last update to 5.07.gpl-2 (today) I do not have access to virtualmin anymore. Hopefully all my virtual servers still running but I can't access to virtualmin web site. I'm using CentOS Linux 7 (Core) and I updated from 5.07.gpl-1

Can you please help me ?

Hi again,

I found the issue. It was related to a missing ssl.key in a virtualserver. After copying all ssl.* files I was able to do a /etc/init.d/webmin restart and access to virtualmin again then regenerate a certificat for the concerned virtualserver.

A quick bug report :)

Debian oldstable here, webmin+virtualmin, lamp.

I briefly tried switching from fcgi to FPM, as php execution mode.

With the previous version of Virtualmin, FPM worked, but Apache wouldn't restart when php was set to using FPM, which forced me to switch back.

Here, with the current-ver of virtualmin, php pages won't work at all, returning every time the same thing in the Apache error log, here is an example [Tue Mar 28 10:53:38 2017] [warn] proxy: No protocol handler was valid for the URL /index.php. If you are using a DSO version of mod_proxy, make sure the proxy submodules are included in the configuration using LoadModule.

No proxy configured to be in use here, though.

Hang in there dear developers, you'll get it working eventually :)
