Updating webmin Chatsexin
Any other method that I can think of would involve putting your password in a plaintext file, which is definitely not a good idea.
Also, if you have Gnome installed on the system, you can set it to auto-update itself by going to System Thanks pytheas22!
In the “Schedule checking options” select “Yes” and specify whether you want the checks every hour, day, or week.
You can even have the system install the updates automatically.
The simplest solution in this situation would just be to specify the user as root to begin with.
The other themes don't seem to have this "Return to Index" button - and if they do, it actually returns to the Webmin Configuration page instead of this elusive "Index" with the upgrade button.
Seems quite complex and unwieldy..this a bug, or is there something funky going on with my installations (I used the to install), or are all of these other Themes just written poorly...though some of them at least give the illusion of propriety..the "Virtualmin Framed Theme".
One would expect to be able to upgrade Webmin while using that theme, at least...however no love.
Anyway, sorry for being long winded and the rant, but it may help someone else hunting for how to upgrade Webmin.
