Using R6, running great. Tried to use webmin for the first time just now and couldn't get in. From looking at miniserv.users I'm guessing only root has access but I tried root & its pwd, root/root, http/http,mythtv/mythtv all with no luck. In fact, I seem to have now locked out one of my machines. Access.log is zero bytes & error.log has nothing useful.

Tips? Thx.

Disclaimer, I have never used this but...

Included with the Webmin distribution is a program called changepass.pl to solve this problem. Assuming you have installed Webmin in /opt/webmin (this is where it is in my R6 installation), you could change the password of the root user to foo by running
Code:
/opt/webmin/changepass.pl /etc/webmin root foo
