    If you use Webmin regularly, you've probably noticed that it is starting to look pretty dated. There is a solution and that is
    to change the theme to the new Stressfree theme. It is a much nicer design and doesn't affect any of the applications associated with Webmin - just the look and arrangement.

    [​IMG]

    Here's how to update to the new theme:

    1. Go to Webmin Stressfree theme and download to your local PC.

    2. Connect to your PiaF server's Webmin then go to Webmin - Webmin Configuration - Webmin Themes - Install Theme - From uploaded file

    3. Browse to the downloaded theme and open, then select Install

    4. Return to the Themes List and select Stressfree and Change.

    5. Done, now you have a new updated Webmin that looks as good as it works!

    That's a great find there... any idea how to install via shell for the purpose of automating install?

    Haven't tested this yet, and I'm quitting for today. But... if you have a spare PIAF 1.7.5.5 machine (ONLY!!!) and you don't mind risking disaster...

    Let me know if it flies... or smokes. :rolleyes5:

    No more hylafax module

    After installing the new theme, my Hylafax server module no longer shows. I have tried reinstalling the module and still no go.

    Okay I installed this, and when I did it errored out and said perl issue and I, like a normal person, freaked out. I refreshed and it was fine.

    So its okay if it gives a perl warning when activating. Just refresh the page.

    Oh and one other thing, to get the cool black sidebar like in the pic there it is a link towards the top right that says "Show Sidebar"

    Thanks for the link!

    I've seen that error pop up and like you mentioned, it works fine after that. The Show Sidebar is one that most people miss seeing at first.
