    Webmin stops working every few hours


    I have a server running Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. I have webmin 1.420 installed on port 10000 using SSL. It works for a while after I install it, but then after a while (a few hours of idleness) or after a restart, webmin does not come up when I type in the server IP address:10000, the domain:10000 or localhost:10000. However, reinstalling webmin using the .deb package seems to fix the problem for a short period. However, I am going off to college soon and this problem needs to be fixed before I leave so that my brother doesn't loose his hair before he turns 18 from server stress...

    Has anyone encountered this problem before? Any fixes?

    - Check if your webmin service is enable when your computer boots with the help of tool called
    Code:
    services-admin
    or try
    Code:
    update-rc.d
    - If answer is yes, try if there is any cron/script running at the same time when your application stops working.

    - check message/webmin logs. If you can please post those logs here.

    Using services-admin showed my service list and webmin was not on it. update-rc.d wouldn't work (it's my first try), so I need to research the exact syntax before I go further on that.

    The (partial) logs are as follows:

    It seems as if the system doesn't realize that it is supposed to be running webmin and that something is wrong.
