1 - did you restart syslog after making changes?

/sbin/service sysylog restart

2 - is webmin running ?
    
# netstat -an |grep 10000
tcp        0      0 0.0.0.0:10000               0.0.0.0:*
LISTEN
udp        0      0 0.0.0.0:10000               0.0.0.0:*

assuming that you are running IE on a Windows computer (not on the
CentOS server), did you access via?

http://IP_ADDRESS_OF_CENTOS_SERVER:10000

^^^^                              ^^^^^^^
 ||                                  ||
 ||                           webmin uses port 1000
http unless you
had perl-Net-SSLeay package installed and then it would be https
