Default webadmin dies to start on Slackware, but starts on Debian

I am running the UT3 dedicated 2.1 (patch 2.1 came out a few days ago) under Slackware 12.2. I have tried joining games inside the LAN and works fine.

My next step was to add the webadmin package. I have installed it successfully, set bEnable=True and used my custom (non-priviledged) port. Here is my UTWeb.ini:

Problem is I keep recieving the message that I must enable bEnabled:

ScriptLog: Webserver is not enabled. Set bEnabled to True in Advanced Options.
ScriptLog: Destroying WebServer
To make sure I haven't done anything wrong, I rsync'ed the whole UT3 directory in a Debian Squeeze box, and the webadmin UI runs fine:

ScriptLog: Web Server Created Port: 8001 MaxCon 18 ExpirationSecs 86400 Enabled True
Log: GConfig::Find has loaded file: ..\UTGame\Localization/int/
WebAdmin: Starting UT3 WebAdmin v1.12 - 2009-03-09 21:20:43 +0000
WebAdmin: Creating IWebAdminAuth instance from: BasicWebAdminAuth
WebAdmin: Creating ISessionHandler instance from: SessionHandler
WebAdmin: Updating news...
WebAdmin: Unable to find query handler class: WebAdmin.WebAdminSystemSettings
So to sum it, the exact same settings run on Squeeze but not on Slackware.

First I tried to open all ports, and disabled any services I could (httpd, gpm, acpid, sshd, etc). No luck. Next I tried an older version of webadmin (a stable one, just older), but again, nothing.

How can I make webadmin work on Slackware?

If it says "Webserver not enabled" even though you set bEnabled=True in your INI, that most likely means it's using the wrong INI file.

After I read your message I grep'ed all .ini files to see in how many files bEnabled gets set. It's only in DefaultWeb.ini and UTweb.ini. I tried deleting DefaultWeb.ini just in case the game reads bEnabled from there, but again it didn't worked.

After some more frustration, I finaly thought searching ~/.* files, and there it was ~/.Unreal Tournament 3! I thought they would use ~/.ut3, but, oh well.

The file ~/.Unreal Tournament 3/UTGame/Config/UTWeb.ini overrides every other file for setting bEnabled. Changed the option there, restarted the server, and voila! the webadmin works like a charm.

Thanks a bunch man!
