If your webmin account is locked out due to too many wrong attempts, then simply wait at least 10-15 minutes, or issue following commands to login quickly.

If you are unable to login with the root id  on webmin

use following.

cd /usr/share/webmin
./ /etc/webmin/ root newrootpassword

WEBMIN installation in Ubuntu using apt-get

I assumed that you have installed and configure your Linux box (preferably Ubuntu, but any flavor can do the job, this is the main quality of Linux OS :)~ To install Webmin , first add its repositories to sources.list, to do this first open sources.list

nano /etc/apt/sources.list

Now paste the following lines in the end of this file.

deb sarge contrib
