The error does indicate a filesystem permissions issue.
Check whether the file mentioned in the log (and actually everything under /tersus-applications) has 'rw' permissions for the user running the tomcat process.
I'm sorry to say that I have no experience with webmin, so I can't help you with the specifics. I presume you do not have terminal/ssh access to the machine...
Please keep us posted.
For best results, use the Firefox browser..
