Fix for Webmin LaunchDaemon issue

Sat, Jan 2, 2016

Server / Web Apps

With Webmin 1.760 and 1.770, we were running into a situation where we had to keep running the setup install script from Terminal, as Webmin seemed as though it was not installed.

From Terminal, we ran:

sudo /Users/[user]/Sites/webmin-1.770/

and then it was fine. But after a restart, we ran into the same issue where the Webmin page said it could not find http://[pc-name].local:10000/.

Turns out the issue was our LaunchDaemon.

In ~/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.webmin.webmin.plist, here’s what fixed it:

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC “-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN” “”>
<plist version=”1.0″>

After a restart, Webmin was back to normal.
