Recover Root Username and Password

It has been a long time since I set up my nas4free box and it has been huming along perfectly and I didn't do a good job of keeping things updated until my Roku will not work anymore with my plex server. So I am trying to use ssh to update my plex server on a jail and am having problems. After much probing around both here and on the Plex forums, I believe the problem is that when I open up PuTTY and login to the server, I am using my webgui username and password and not the root username and password that I created when I originally set up my server. Is there anyway that I can recover my root username and password?

in thebrig to log as root inside a jail you only need to know jail id:
jls

and log into it :
jexec 4 csh

and example: viewtopic.php?f=79&t=2358
