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
– And insert the next query
UPDATE sys_user SET passwort = md5('newpass') WHERE username = 'admin';
(Replace your “newpass” 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!

Thanks for the solution!
Your fancy pancy formatting however breaks the quotation marks.. You might want to correct that..
Happy to know this worked for you!
Thanks for your remark… I’ve changed the text highlighter and now it should display quotation marks correctly.
