Is there away to find an admin passwd for the web pages?

I have root access to the system.

Not sure if the passwd is stored somewhere with in the mailman configs or
db's.

    There are three types of passwords:

    - User password, this is simply the password for the mailman user on
    your server, it lets you login as the user "mailman", all of Mailman's
    processes run as this user. To change this password, login as root and
    run:
    passwd mailman

    - Mailman Site password, this lets you login to any list as an admin
    and look at or modify the configuration, as well as approve posts
    (anything an admin of the list can do). To change this password, login
    to the server as root or the mailman user and run:
    ~mailman/bin/mmsitepass

    - List password, each list has a password that allows a local admin to
    modify or configure the list, as well as approve posts to the list. To
    change this password, login to the Web Admin page for the list (using
    the Mailman Site password), go to the bottom of the General Options web
    page and put in the new password. This password will be specific to
    this list.

    Hope this helps!
