Downgrade Virtualmin pt3

Okay its seems that the virtualmin downgrade has settled down now.
I’m still working out exactly how much functionality I have lost by going to the free GPL version but this is what I did:
After installing the RPM I downloaded the repo and installed it with:
rpm -Uvh –oldpackage virtualmin-release-latest.rpm
I then ran a
yum clean all
This will clean up the repo settings left over from the downgrade and reset to the gpl version.
You then need to go into the webmin control panel
WEBMIN>SYSTEM>Scheduled Cron Jobs
and disable the following cron jobs that are not offered in the gpl version:
sendratings.pl
maillog.pl
fcgiclear.pl
The last one is a clean up program for fastcgi but , I haven’t found out what the other 2 jobs do.
I just know that they give me errors in my logs if left enabled.

Okay its seems that the Virtualmin downgrade has settled down now.

I’m still working out exactly how much functionality I have lost by going to the free GPL version but this is what I did:

  • I downloaded the repo rpm and installed it with:

rpm -Uvh –oldpackage virtualmin-release-latest.rpm

  • I then ran a

yum clean all

This will clean up the repo settings left over from the downgrade and reset to the gpl version.

I then went into the webmin control panel:

WEBMIN>SYSTEM>Scheduled Cron Jobs

and disabled the following cron jobs (these are apparently not valid in the gpl version of Virtualmin):

  1. sendratings.pl
  2. maillog.pl
  3. fcgiclear.pl

That last one is a clean up program for fastcgi but , I haven’t found out what the other 2 jobs do.

I just know that they give me errors in my logs if left enabled.

I have since discovered that it might be possible to change the username and password to “GPL” and the re-run the install script. I have not tested this and don’t know what that would do to the existing servers, mailpacks , etc.
