Delete Virtual Server in Virtualmin – How to do it easily

by | Jun 15, 2021

Due to different reasons, we may want to delete a Virtual Server in Virtualmin.

As part of our Server Management Services, we assist our customers with several Virtualmin queries.

Today, let us see how we can delete a Virtual Server in Virtualmin.


Delete Virtual Server in Virtualmin

First and foremost, make note that once we remove a Virtual Server, all files, databases, and users are permanently deleted and cannot be restored without a backup.

Moving ahead, let us see how our Support Techs perform the task.

  1. Initially, we click on the Virtualmin section.
  2. Then we click on the domain name for the Virtual Server we wish to delete from the drop-down box.
    For example,
  3. Here, we select Disable and Delete from the available options
  4. Eventually, we click on the Delete Virtual Server module
  5. Once we are sure to delete the Virtual Server, we click the Yes, Delete It button.

As a result, the Virtual Server we select will delete and no longer accessible.


Common error

  • Domain not listed under the virtual server

Recently, we had a client who was unable to create a domain “”. He came across the error:

“Failed to create virtual server: The domain is already hosted by your Apache webserver”

He was unable to list the “” under the virtual server list to delete.

In such a case, we can delete the entry from the apache virtual host manually.

Our Support techs edit the apache configuration file and remove the virtual host block for the “”:

#vi /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

In addition, we ensure to remove the corresponding user for the domain.

We can do that from the command line, or from Webmin -> System -> Users and Groups.
