I've been locked out of webmin on my laptop & my tablet because I can't remember the password for my webmin account.

I've tried running:

/usr/share/webmin/changepass.pl /etc/webmin [my username] [new password]

and also:

bash /usr/share/webmin/changepass.pl /etc/webmin [my username] [new password]

But these don't seem to be working...

Help?
If you try to look through Windows, you can see what the person is doing.

Have you tried just your normal username + password?

Yep, was positive it was the same as the one that's on the server. I just need to reset it, and I know I can because there's a changepass script in the webmin folder... I just can't get it to work for me.

OK, From memory I think the default install (unless you changed it) it uses root as username and your root password as the password.
Alternatively just re-install, it will tell you then
