From the webmin FAQ located at http://webmin.com/faq.html :
How do I change my Webmin password if I can't login?
Included with the Webmin distribution is a program called
changepass.pl to solve precisely this problem. Assuming you have
installed Webmin in /usr/local/webmin-1.170, you could change the
password of the admin user to foo by running
/usr/local/webmin-1.170/changepass.pl /etc/webmin admin foo
