The default for Webmin is set at 5 attempts and then a lockout is set for 60 seconds. So if you haven't changed these defaults, you should be able to try again in 60 seconds.
The login details should be what you supplied during installation. If you somehow don't remember these, try the below steps.
If you are running a RedHat distribution (i.e. Fedora, CentOS, Gentoo), enter the following command with root or
/usr/libexec/webmin/changepass.pl /etc/webmin username password
If you are running a Debian distribution (i.e. Ubuntu like you), enter the following command with root or
/usr/share/webmin/changepass.pl /etc/webmin username password
Of course the user you specify will need to be a valid user in the Webmin config. This will not work for creating new Webmin users.
