ASKER

but its change my root password too, i just want to webmin access password for root
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 ...

i already slove the problem , just doing with this command


/usr/libexec/webmin/changepass.pl /etc/ root (password)
Isnt that same as the command I posted in my first post?

anyway i m giving u points but i m not fully satisfiesd with ur answer
IF THE MODERATOR CAN GIVE THE POINTS AS WELL THEN WHY WE HAVE TO ASSIGN POINT HERE? JUST DO WHAT EVER U LIKE
HIS ANSWER WAS NOT CLEAR THAT IS WHY I GAVE HIM GRADE B,
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)
