I'm having a problem with webmin and apache 2. I changed all the module configuration options to apache2 and mostly it seems to be working, except when I try to use webmin to start or stop apache. It always says apache isnt running.
The command I told it to issue is apache2 -k start, which works fine when I type it into the console.
Failed to start apache : Apache does not appear to be running :
Usage: /etc/init.d/apache2 start|stop|restart|reload|force-reload

In the webmin apache config, does it have the correct location for the PID file?

Hi, I have some question regarding Webmin so I'll ask here, don't want to open new thread (came to this thread via search, had same problem as NancyJ, which I solved meanwhile).
Anyway, I started using some dedicated server and I have Webmin as control panel. There is also Apache that I turned on and it worked.
But since I didn't find anything to access server via ftp, I searched on net and understood that I need to install some module for it on Webmin.
In list of inactive modules I found Proftpd and install it. And then I made problem: somewhere in Webmin where is administration of users I edited user "ftp" since when logging I went to directory /var/ftp and I wanted to go to /var/www/html.
But when I changed accessing directory from /var/ftp to /var/www/html it didn't work so I again moved to /var/ftp. After that I again couldn't access but noticed in file manager under Webmin that content of /var/www was moved to /var/ftp and previous content of /var/ftp disappeared. I created new directory www in /var and copied in file manager content from /var/ftp but again when access from public address I receive error 403 forbidden. I rebooted system but again same.
So could someone help me with this? I'll provide you with more informations if it is needed.
Thanks in advance
