After experimenting on another server I had installed webmin with virtual min but unfortunately this messed up my permissions, then I reinstalled from backup and my browser is telling me it cannot connect, then I restored from backup and I get this error when trying to sud apt-get install apache or proftpd to try and get my files back to start from scratch, what do I do?

Thanks, Marcus
