Webmin not autostarting on boot? Sometime over the last year or so, for some reason Webmin stopped starting after a reboot. I’ve always done a manual restart with a:

/etc/init.d/webmin start

command, so I figured added it to

/etc/rc.d/rc.local

would fix it. But it didn’t.

Apparently, Webmin has a separate startup script of:

/etc/webmin/start

So, to fix the boot startup issue, just add that snippet to your

/etc/rc.d/rc.local

file, and it will correct the problem!
