I had to re install my VPS due to some fatal problems, it now has a clean version of ubuntu 8.04 and virtualmin. I have 18 domains that i have backed up on my home computer which i spent 3 hours uploading these files to the server so i could do a restore with them.

But when i restore using the Virtualmin restore panel i get this error:

Starting restore of 18 domains from local file /restore ..

Extracting backup archive files .. .. done

Backup does not contain virtual server information for missing domain homes/contact/.spamassassin/bayes.

.. failed! See the progress output above for the reason why.

Also when i first installed virtualmin back on to this server i did get an installation error:

INFO - 2010-10-21 07:47:41 - Updating SpamAssassin rules...

INFO - Rule updates failed

I don't know if it was that that is causing the problems.

Thanks, David
