If you have only the list moderator password, the only thing you
can do is to perform list moderation tasks. You will not be able to
log into the general admin page for that list, or perform any of the
broader list administration tasks.
If you have the list administrator password, you can log into the
list moderator page and the list admin page, and you can perform all
list moderation functions as well as all list administration
functions. The same password will work in both places.
If you have the site administrator password, you can log into the
list moderator page or list administrator page for any list on that
server, and perform all the appropriate tasks. The same password
will work for all lists.
So, if you want your list moderators to also be able to do list
administration, then give them the list administration password and
make them list administrators and not just list moderators.
