When you manage more then one ISPConfig server or multiple websites, it just happnes 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 reset your ISPConfig password:

Get your mysql password first

You can find it here:


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


So, let`s go!  Type the commands below, in the right order.

mysql -u root -p

Select your databese

use dbispconfig;

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! If you have any question or an alternative that you want to share, feel free to leave a comment below.
