How to change your ISPConfig admin password

When you manage more then one ISPConfig server or multiple websites, it just happens sometimes to forget the passwords (in case you didn`t write them down) or can`t find the file where you put them.

Don`t worry! There is a simple way to reset your ISPConfig admin password .

To change your ISPConfig admin password: Get your mysql password first!


I use putty to login to my console. You can also do this in virtual console from your droplet.

So, let`s go!

  • In the terminal type the commands below, in the right order as shown:
    • mysql -u root -p
  • select your database
    • use dbispconfig;
  • And insert the next query
    • UPDATE sys_user SET passwort = md5(‘parola_noua’) WHERE username = ‘admin’;

(Replace your “new_password” with one that you desire.)

After this you can login again with your user and new password through server interface.

This is all that you have to do!
