Change Password Of Server OpenSUSE 12.2 With ISPConfig 3

In this tutorial we will show you how to change the password of your mail server which is running on OpenSUSE 12.2 and ISPConfig 3.x. We will take it that you have configured your server from HERE.

N.B. The procedure which we will describe here works for us, there may have other thousands ways to achieve the same goal, and we don’t insure any guarantee that it will work for you or this is the perfect way.

We will take it that you username is root and password is password for this tutorial.

First log into your mail server. Log in as root and remain until the end of this tutorial.

 

Step 1:

Change the password of your MySQL database.

mysql –uroot –p
password
use mysql;
update user set Password=PASSWORD(password') WHERE User='root';
exit;
service mysql restart;

 

Step 2:

Then update the password in the /usr/local/ispconfig/server/lib/mysql_clientdb.conf file.

nano /usr/local/ispconfig/server/lib/mysql_clientdb.conf

Update the $clientdb_password variable with your password.

 $clientdb_password              = 'password';

 

Step 3:

Change the password of ISPConfig. We guess you know how to do it.

 

Step 4:

Finally change the password of operating system:

passwd

Now enter your password twice.

Now restart your machine to all the changes may take effect.

If you have a better idea we would like to hear it from you.

If you have any question you may mail us.
