How can I make a Webmin user always use the same password as their shell login?

This can be done by following these steps :

In the Perl Modules module of Webmin.

install Authen::PAM from CPAN.

In the PAM Authentication module, add a new PAM service called webmin that uses Unix authentication.

In the Webmin Users module, click on the user that you want to symchronize with Unix and set his Password option to Unix Authentication.

If PAM is not used on your operating system, the first two steps can be skipped.

Webmin will instead read the /etc/passwd or /etc/shadow file directly to authenticate users who are using the Unix Authentication password mode.
