Webmin Webpage Does not display after initiating an OpenLDAP installation

mrmad1966 used Ask the Experts™
Folks, I have a Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS installed. It is currently a file server but I have decided I would now like to centralise my users and passwords as my windows 7 client PCs are incresing and the local users and passwords are now becoming a chore. I am following this guide https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/openldap-server.html.
I have ran the first command sudo apt-get install slapd ldap-utils and all seemed to go perfect but after a reboot I can login via putty but no longer through the web browser via webmin. I get a message to the effect of "the server rejected the connection"... Any ideas Gurus ?

Maybe you need configure the webmin to load user authenticathion from ldap database.

That article implies that they still can access there user min webpage. I cannot....
But you can try to edit the file "/etc/pam.d/usermin", no?

First problem while looking into this is I cannot ssh in using putty using the test user that was setup during the initial openLDAP installation, I do not appear to have a /etc/pam.d/ssh as in the article hyperlink, finally the /etc/pam.d/webmin file only has 4 simple include entries :-(
Still Stuck !
What are the entries in file (/etc/pam.d/webmin)?


Please see screenshot ! /etc/pam.d/webmin
Strange this file content... I expected something like this:

Solved... The problem lay in the /etc/webmin/miniserv.conf file. I added the line allow= &hey presto, still no idea how it disappeared though !

Thanks for trying to help though !!


Unfortunately, earlier answers did not point to the file in question...Sorry
