My operating system is (include version): CentOS Linux 6.8

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): Yes

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): Virtualmin

@diafygi, it looks like Virtualmin is using acme-tiny. Do you have any suggestions here?

Many thanks for your response. I’ve been struggling to find anything on this all day. I can’t find anything like this issue on the virtualmin forum

Virtualmin released a fix for this issue which worked for me. The fix is actually for the webmin module so while I had the current version of virtualmin, webmin needed to be also upgraded.

where is the fix? can you post a link please?

Simply upgrade to the latest version of Webmin
