Centos 8 Virtualmin installation script fail


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:

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.
