admin and mythtv work for me. There is a change password page once you 
are  logged in, but I don't know if it works.

The web front end was never completed and setup pages may not work or 
may work incorrectly.

In V34 the web front end has been replaced by the web app, which does 
not require a sign on, is complete, and supports the full setup. The web 
frontend is deprecated.
