Default Changing/retrieving the ispconfig user password

Howdy ,

Is there a way to retrieve the pass of the ispconfig main user in mysql?
or even change and reconfigure ispconfig after changing the mysql user password?
I do remember the root user pass, but not the ispconfig password in mysql

The password is in the file /usr/local/ispconfig/server/lib/config.inc.php in cleartext. Use this password from the file to reset the password in mysql in case you cahnged it.


Do not change the password in the ispconfig file as the same password is in a lot of other config files. So never try to change the password of the ispconfig user manually in mysql if you dont want to break the system.

The reason i asked this because i want Mod_auth_mysql to connect to the mail part of the ispconfig database , so i can get dspam to work with virtual users AND the users will be able to connect to the dspam webinterface using their ispconfig-related passwords
