Hi,

Yes, we are aware of it. It's fixed in our dev environment. Simply restart Webmin /etc/webmin/restart and re-run the installer.

Failed to create virtual server : No virtual domains file (virtual_alias_maps) was found in your Postfix configuration!

It's also fixed. Update the following file:

/usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/Virtualmin/Config/Plugin/Postfix.pm

.. from

https://raw.githubusercontent.com/virtualmin/Virtualmin-Config/master/lib/Virtualmin/Config/Plugin/Postfix.pm

..and then run:

virtualmin-config-system -i=Postfix

Update file contents.

System reboot is not necessary but never hurts.

keeps asking to install procmail

recheck error:

The Procmail program needed for spam filtering does not appear to be installed on your system, or has not yet been set up properly in Webmin's Procmail Mail Filter module. If your system does not use spam filtering, it should be disabled in Virtualmin's module configuration page.

i did the following before post install was successful:

sudo chown root:root /bin/procmail sudo chmod 0600 /bin/procmail

Surely, something wrong with those permission>?

Got it.

Had to Disable spam, virus and remove procmail. Reinstall procmail, enable spam, virus.

We need to push updated packages to our repos and that's it.
