I was using webmin as https://192.168.0.1:10000 fine, I made changes to IP Access controll and I did the upgrade feature to upgrade my version of webmin

After doing this and closeing the browser, I cannot get back in, the broswer apears to be trying to load the page but remains blank.  I suspect it problably had somethign to do with one of the two changes I made.

In IP Access Controll I chose to Only alow from listed addresses:  I added the following:

192.168.0.1
127.0.0.1

I saved the changes.  I then went into the upgrade feature, it said it completed and net time I am to login at https://CPE0080c6fe15a9-CM014480118888:10000 instead!!!

why?  I tryed this anyway and it tells me CPE0080c6fe15a9-CM014480118888 Could not be found

I am on dhcp and incidently every time I login useing gnomes gdm it also gives me an error about this host name.  I know for a fact it is a host name assigned to me automaticaly by my isp but I can;t get rid of it.  anyway...

https://192.168.0.1:10000/
https://127.0.0.1:10000/

also fail.  Nothing can get me back into my webadmin, and I dont want to have to reinstall this darn Mandrake. Linux.

Please help me get back in, I have root access so if there are some files I need to edit i can.

I have since managed to solve the problem by using Mandrakes remove packages feature to remove webmin, then to reinstall webmin, afterwards starting webmin again

/etc/init.d/webmin start

And now I have access again.

Guess I was too impatient.
