I have virtualmin setup on a centos 7. It has been a while I've done that install but from what I recall there was little problems when doing that install.
today I started a new instance with Centos7.6 base install from digital ocean. I then ran the virtual script to install. I got into tons of problems, problems I really don't recall having in the past doing virtualmin installs.
clam install was a nightmare, but I got through it. One install I couldn't believe as I ran the post install wizard that succeeded, and only after I ran the re-config check it told me that postfix wasn't even installed!? The wizard mentioned no such things about it.
so I install it. After that re-config check started giving me all sorts of problems about postfix not being setup at all. some ex. Postfix virtual maps : No map sources were found in the Postfix configuration another was BCC mappings not being define ( sorry I don't have the actual error anymore in front of me )
I looked at my other already running config along with some internet searching to get some of these things resolved. But now I am no longer confident that I will have a machine running as smoothly as the other one. ( for at least the virtualmin parts )
did I royal screw up this post-install?
why wouldn't postfix be installed? was it the copy of digital ocean a problem Is it normal that virtualmin only installs php 5.5 that is kind of outdated? Did I maybe screw it up by updating newer versions php and mariaDB ( not for postfix of course )
Has virtualmin development slowed down or stopped? ex. according to this there would be releases for mysql as post-install only supports mariadb, but dated in 2017 https://www.virtualmin.com/node/39171
I am not complaining. I love open source, I love virtualmin and webmin, and would even contribute to pro or donate if I can get clients on it. But I feel the installs are never the same on centos, or I really don't know what I'm doing.
any help to understand is appreciated.
