    Webmin configuration help

    Alright. I've troubleshooted most of it already. I just need a bit of a push.

    Ok here's my problem. No matter how I edit my webmin config settings, I can never access webmin via browser. Here are the some of the steps I took.

    #1: Forwarded neccesary ports, and even used DMZ in my router to completely leave my computer unprotected.

    #2: Installed webmin correctly

    #3: Fooled around with config miniserv.conf

    I'm not getting anywhere and fast.

    The problem is, before this I installed XAMPP and could view the splash screen from http://localhost.

    I can no longer view that.

    The error I get is connection refused when trying to contact local host.

    It's not the router, and DSL linux does not come with a firewall.

    So I'm sure it has something to do with the configuration files of webmin.

    Because before webmin was installed, I could view the XAMPP splash screen.

    I looked in miniserv.conf and there were no Allow or deny lines, so I just left it.

    To access webmin I tried http://localhost:10000 and https://localhost:10000

    still didn't work. Connection refused.

    What I need to do is be able to access webmin from LAN which is about three computers.

    I can't understand what is wrong, and I've googled for hours and hours and CANNOT find a solution.

    hopefully you guys can help me.

    Otherwise i'll have to get rid of webmin

    Alright... I've got some things narrowed down.

    It's definetley the webmin configuration.

    I re installed DSL linux, and XAMPP, and webmin.

    I haven't touched any config files.

    The XAMPP splash page shows now at http://localhost, but webmin still won't show.

    I know it's not the router, as I have done extensive testing.

    It has to be the webmin config files. I just don't know what to edit.

    I've tried so many editing tips from other webmin config sites, but nothing works.

    Currently, the miniserv.conf has no allow= or deny= lines. Should I edit this file, or edit another file and leave this one alone.

    I'm so close I can taste it. Please help me out here.

    is your linux firewall blocking port 10000? this could be the problem, also make sure webmin is running.

    Damn Small Linux doesn't have a firewall as far as I know.

    And yes webmin was running.

    I got rid of it now though. Just wasn't working out.
