sunnycoder

webmin and system root passwords are two different entities ... they might initially be the same but they can be changed independent of each other ...

Try modifying the webmin password using GUI ...

no the response was not fully correct, and  i know the site rules and member agreement very much and as per the rule if someone;s responese completly clear in nature then only he or she  can receive the grade A. If someone ask you when sun rise today, and if your answer is morning then your answer is not fully correct you have to say the exact time when sun rise happened today. So as a moerator your should know who can get grade A. is that clear to u?

the answer should be usr/libexec/webmin/changepass.pl /etc/ root (password)
