I tried a IPv6 only VPS. It has no IP v4 address.
It is always error connection when I tried to use an IP v6 to connect it.
Here is some new knowledge for me.
Use a pair  around the IPv6 address when using it in the Browser address .
The correct format is: https://[2001:19f0:8001:ae7:5400:1ff:fe93:a764]:10000
To enabled IPv6 support.
add a line
2) Install Socket6 perl module
apt install libsocket6-perl
Then restart webmin service.
Now I can enter the webmin which is IPv6 only webmin.
It is a little bit tricky when I install SSL certificate in Webmin. Here is a how-to of installation of it.
Now Webmin is version 1.710, on CentOS 6.5.
The SSL certificate is issued by Comodo.
The very important part is the key and certificates themselves. I have all these files from gotssl.com. But I know know how to combin them or which one is the correct file.
So, make two files first.
1) Combine server private key and certificate into one file.
<code>-----BEGIN PRIVATE KEY-----
(Contents of private key)
-----END PRIVATE KEY-----
(Contents of SSL certificate: your_domain_name.crt)
-----END CERTIFICATE----- </code>
It is for chained certificates.
(contents of COMODORSADomainValidationSecureServerCA.crt)
(contents of COMODORSAAddTrustCA.crt)
Save both files into /etc/webmin/
2) Sign in webmin with http protocol.
Goto, Webmin > Webmin Configuration > SSL Encryption
Filling the fields of Private Key and Additional certificate files.
And also choose Yes on “Enable SSL if available? “.
Click Save and it works right away.
Then when you need to access webmin. The URL is https://your_domain_name.com:10000
No more warning of self-signed certificate.
It is easy to use Webmin to manage VPS, including MySQL server. But it is not working with MariaDB default.
The webmin MySQL server shows error as below:
It can not find the path of command to start and stop MariaDB and also config file of MariaDB server.
So click module configuration and change:
Command to start MySQL server: /etc/init.d/mysql start
Command to stop MySQL server: /etc/init.d/mysql stop
MySQL configuration file: /var/lib/mysql/my.cnf
If your MariaDB server configuration file is not in this location, double check your setting and enter the correct value.
After saving, it will ask for your username and password to connect your MariaDB server. Enter them and save.
At this step, you can add database or do other tasks in Webmin.
