Do. Not. Use. An. Admin. Panel. Ok? :) Seriously, though. They're universally clumsy, they do odd things to your servers that make them impossible or difficult to troubleshoot via standard means, and perhaps worst of all, they actively prevent you from learning proper systems administration, and from acquiring the knowledge and skills necessary to do your ...

How did you install Webmin? Your installation is broken. You should probably try uninstalling it and reinstalling. The "Missing Content-Type Header" error probably means the Perl path is incorrect in the files you replaced...look at the shebang line at the start of the file. It should point to wherever perl is installed on your system. i.e. if perl is in ...

Your webmin is fine. I'm sure this is all related to session information stored in the database that webmin uses. Your server is as about as secure as you make it.
