[SOLVED] Webmin connection is very slow

Hey There,

I made a fresh install of DietPi V140 on my XU4 and I installed Webmin.

I can access Webmin, but the connection is very slow - sometimes it takes more than 30 secs til the browser show the clicked part of Webim (e.g. the user and group part).

The XU4 shlud have enough ressources to handle the Webmin, so…?

Does anybody had the same issues with Webmin?

Thx for a short reply!


Hey there,

for anybody with the same problem - here is what I have done:

  1. Uninstall the version provided via dietpi-software
  2. Changed into to tmp-directory via cd /tmp
  3. Downloaded the latest version of Webmin via wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/webmin_1.820_all.deb
  4. Install Webmin via dpkg -i webmin_1.820_all.deb
  5. If errors occure do a apt-get -f install and the missing dependencies will be fixed.

Greets, Michael

Thanks Micheal,

Possible bug with the current version of WebMin (which DietPi pulls in):

			/DietPi/dietpi/func/check_connection "$INSTALL_URL_ADDRESS"
			if (( $? == 0 )); then

				wget "$INSTALL_URL_ADDRESS" -O package.deb
				dpkg -i package.deb


				rm package.deb
