Hi everyone,

Can anyone tell me what uses port 10000 on Turnkey Wordpress VM?  I need to install a backup application that uses that port.  if it's webmin, is there a way to disable it from running?  I know I can run it up manually if required....

Ok - Figured it out.

For anyone else that's interested it was webmin, I stopped webmin...

/etc/init.d/webmin stop

.. then disabled it...

update-rc.d webmin disable

If I need it again, I can always...

/etc/init.d/webmin start

Glad that you worked it out.

Although FWIW the commands that you used are legacy commands and shouldn't always be expected to work (they'll only work if there is still a legacy sysvinit script in /etc/init.d). The modern equivalents are:

systemctl stop webmin
systemctl disable webmin

Or stop and disable in one command:

systemctl disable --now webmin

FWIW stunnel will still be running on port 12321 as well (it sits between port 10000 & 12321). If you also want to stop that:

systemctl status stunnel4@webmin
