Where/how are you installing?

Most TKL installation methods (ISO, VM-image) include firstboot scripts which allow you to configure passwords on firstboot. Others such as OpenStack and OVZ (eg via Proxmox) require you to manually run the scripts manually with turnkey-init.

Webmin, Webshell, SSH and SFTP all require the root user and the password you have configured (on firstboot or launch). There is no default root password.
