Ok... Ive been using TKL for years.. but still consider myself a total noob when it comes to linux and TKL operations.

The Latest build V15 has Webmin like V14... but look very different and seems to be missing some things I was accustomed to using.  Namely a file editor for editing configuration files via filemin, and filemin has no .ZIP extraction option from what I can see.  I can do all these things from the console, but really like popping on the GUI sometimes to do stuff.

Webmin has lots of modules I guess I can "bolt" on to it... but I dont understand how to set those up, or even how to install them.

Please, if I am missing out on some sort of documenatation or tutorial on general overal usage of TKL LAMP, let me know.   If nothing like that exists... perhaps I could help the project by creating a guide once I figure out the stuff that applies to me?

Thank you TKL team for all your hard work... its most appreciated!

Thanks so much for reporting this. You're not going crazy! It's a bug because there is a missing dependency! I've opened a new issue on our tracker. I'll aim to fix it at least by v15.1, but possibly for the remaining v15.0 builds as well. As per my note on the tracker, in the meantime you can fix it for your current appliance like this (via commandline):

apt-get update
apt-get install libfile-mimeinfo-perl
service webmin restart

Now when you right click on a zip file (or a tar.gz or tar.xz etc) it should give you the option to "extract"! :)

Re your offer to assist with documentation; I'd like to think that our docs have incrementally improved over the years, but it is still sadly not as good as I'd like it to be. So if you'd like to assist in improving our docs, I'd love it! And I'm sure new and old users alike would also welcome it!

FWIW I did start a new doc page for Webmin and noted the 2 main things I thought may be of interest to v15.0 users; change the default module on login and revert to the old "stressfree" theme. But there is plenty of room for additional documentation if you care to have a go.

Perhaps it'd be better to split those 2 bits I added off into sub pages (of webmin) and add some additional pages too? FWIW the docs are a wiki, so you should be able to add new pages and/or edit existing ones. But if you have any issues, please ask.

I would love to help out the project... so I will check out the Wiki for sure.


Thanks for the fast response.

Thanks for reporting. I've opened an issue on the tracker for this so it gets fixed for the next release.

On both EspoCRM appliance and base LAMP stack, webmin PHP configuration is not pointed to the right files.

/etc/php5/apache2/php.ini  should be /etc/php/7.0/apache2/php.ini

/etc/php5/cli/php.ini  should be /etc/php/7.0/cli/php.ini

FWIW that issue has actually been reported previously, but I haven't yet had a chance to have a look.

Your post prompted me to have a quick look. I have noted the manual workaround (if you haven't already worked it out yourself) as a comment on the issue.

I've also opened a pull request which should fix it. Unfortunately I haven't had a chance to test it properly yet, so I haven't merged it into the build code, but hopefully it should work...
