Reset Password for Webmin

This happens to everyone at one time or another. You go on vacation and when you come back, you forget all of the passwords on your computer. Well, I only forgot one password: the login for Webmin.

I failed logging in several times and then Webmin blocked my IP. Getting localhost blocked isn’t a good thing to see. So I searched the Internet for a way to reset the password and I found this procedure:

  1. Login to your computer as root.
  2. If you are running a RedHat distribution (i.e. Fedora, CentOS, Gentoo), enter the following command:/usr/libexec/webmin/changepass.pl /etc/webmin username passwordIf you are running a Debian distribution, enter the following command:

    /usr/share/webmin/changepass.pl /etc/webmin username password

  3. Login to Webmin with your reset password.
