where mysql db information in ispconfig3
Hi Guys,

We forgot the root password of mysql datbase. So, we reset the password.
Now, isp config login is not working

Access denied for user 'ispconfig'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in /usr/local/ispconfig/interface/lib/classes/ on line 73

can someone tell me why the file is empty? Where ISP config keeps the datbase login and password. Even it tried manually typed password in db_mysql_inc.php file(Changed classes private variable) and change password in the database from phpmyadmin.. it didn't work.

We had debain-maint user login issue but managed to fix it by copying password from /etc/mysql/debian.cnf and put it in the mysql user database.

You did not reset the root password, according to the error message you reset the password for the ispconfig user. This wa a very bad idea because this password is used in many config files all over the operating system. Take a look at the files in /etc/postfix, /etc/courier, /etc/pam.d/, /usr/local/ispconfig/server/lib/ and /usr/local/ispconfig/interface/lib/

Thanks for the information. I managed get it fixed by copying the old password from php file and run sql query on the database.

I need help.
The problem is I forgot the root password for my mysql ISPConfig.
I check the file:
/ usr / local / ISPConfig / server / lib / and
/ usr / local / ISPConfig / interface / lib /
but password enscript, how can I find out the password?

The following contents :

//** Database
$conf['db_type'] = 'mysql';
$conf['db_host'] = 'localhost';
$conf['db_database'] = 'dbispconfig';
$conf['db_user'] = 'ispconfig';
$conf['db_password'] = '55a1975966384afad53c2bb8f188b9bb';

My system :
OS : CentOS 6.4 64bit
