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!
