Resetting Turnkey Linux File Server Admin Password

I've been using Turnkey Linux file server for a few years and I think it is an excellent appliance software.  But my hard drive recently crashed and I had to reinstall.  I only got around now to try and create user accounts but couldn't remember what I set the login password as.  I tried all the usually suspects but none work.

After reading a few sites at Google, I finally found this tip that worked:

Basically, you can manually edit the .htusers.php file of extplorer and change the "admin" password with one that you manually generate using echo | md5sum.
