Yosemite Backup password change

I dont know what the version of Red Hat Linux is.
I changed the password for the Yosemite Backup application itself.  I logged out of the Yosemite Backup application, and then logged back in with my new password with success.  Note that this new password is exactly the same as the old password.  Yosemite Backup seemed to allow me to change the old password to the same exact value as the new password....

I then changed the Yosemite Backup settings so the password would never expire.  That is all I did.  I then logged out of the Yosemite Backup application.

I then had to log back in to the Yosemite Backup application, and it did not accept the new password!!   It let me in before, so why not now?  Do you think there is something within the application that is not allowing me to use the same value for the new password as the old password?  If so, why did it let me change it like that without any warnings, and why did it let me log back in the first time after changing it?

I don't know tapeware for linux, so I don't know the name it is started under. An easy way would be to get yourself webmin, which is a webbased administration tool for most things within linux. So you can administer your linux servers on another PC if you like (or on the server itself if it has a GUI and a webbrowser). One of the things you can administer with webmin is what starts, and it also shows you the daemons that have started, usually with some text about that daemon. So if youu find something about tapeware or yosemite, you select it, then use the restart or stop, then start button.

You can get webmin from http://webmin.com

Hello,
I downloaded webadmin, and it is an RPM file.  I do not know what an RPM file is, and I do not know how to open / extract it to install Webadmin.
Please help.

Check the website of webmin, it explains how to install the "rpm". Here are some instructions from the site:

"Installing the RPM
 If you are using the RPM version of webmin, run the command rpm -U webmin-1.300-1.noarch.rpm and the install will be done automatically to /usr/libexec/webmin, the administration username set to root and the password to your current root password. You should now be able to login to Webmin at the URL http://localhost:10000/ .
 If you want to connect from a remote server and your system has a firewall installed, see this page for instructions on how to open up port 10000."

So I install webadmin on the Linux Server?  Will I be able to access it with any web browser after that, as long as the server is open to Port 80?

It uses port 10000 by default, and any browser should work
