Question

Virtualmin installation failed

  • Posted May 13, 2014

I set a new server, fresh Ubuntu 14.04

I followed the procedure described here(https://digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-and-utilize-virtualmin-on-a-vps) to install virtualmin but at some point it failed.

The log doesn’t help much to understand the cause, here it is :

Hi,

I get the same error on Ubuntu 14.04, on a 1GB droplet with 2GB of swap enabled. This is the last bit of virtualmin-install.log:

Hi… just would like you guys to know <br>now virtualmin is officially supported for Ubuntu 14.04 <br> <br>cheers…

Super, <br>Thanks for the help Marinos :) <br> <br>Tried and now working like a charm

Ok I found why you get the error. You are trying to run Virtualmin on Ubuntu 14.04 which is not supported. This is a list of all supported OS by Virtualmin. <br> <br>CentOS 5 and 6 on i386 or x86_64 <br>RHEL 5 and 6 on i386 and x86_64 <br>Scientific Linux 6 on i386 and x86_64 <br>Debian 6 and 7 on i386 or amd64 <br>Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, 10.04, and 12.04 LTS on i386 or amd64

Can you post /root/virtualmin-install.log?
