Basic installation problem

Hi!

I’m on the final installation stage for: https://www.virtualmin.com/documentation/installation/automated

I connect to my server via a private SSH key, not a root password. Hence, I ran this command on my

Ubuntu server

/usr/{share,libexec}/webmin/changepass.pl /etc/webmin root XYZ

Instead of setting my username to root and my password to XYZ, it outputs

This program allows you to change the password of a user in the Webmin
password file. For example, to change the password of the admin user
to foo, you would run:
changepass.pl /etc/webmin admin foo
This assumes that /etc/webmin is the Webmin configuration directory

Please help!

Thanks

Try sudo /usr/share/webmin/changepass.pl /etc/webmin root NEWPASSWORD
