Question #10
What is the username/password for apache2triadcp/awstats/phpxmail etc ?

The password is the global one that you have set in the installer , the username is usually root , the readme file is explicit about this you know.

Thank you.

system@system-laptop:~$ sudo htpasswd -c /etc/passwd test
New password:
Re-type new password:

these are the support forums for apache2triad which is for windows only , and while much of the information on these forums apply to apache servers on any operatong system , some things like the FAQ entry you quoted loose any meaning outside of apache2triad
