…apache virtual server backups. Best to start fresh and build from scratch. Testing the Virtualmin Nginx Modules Virtualmin does not support Nginx and Apache together, and there is no easy migration from Apache to Nginx, so it is suggested to begin with a fresh install of Virtualmin with no existing accounts.
