I'm almost positive I'm entering the right password, but ISPConfig won't let me in. I can still login on the machine as root.
I had a similar problem. I used a random password generator that created a password with "/" in it, and I couldn't log in after I changed my admin password. I read this thread, and thought that it was too much trouble to setup phpMyAdmin, so after a little research, I figured a way to reset the admin password through the command line:
> mysql -h localhost -u root -p
> use ispconfigdb
> update sys_user set passwort = md5('admin') where username = 'admin';
First line logs you into mysql from the command line with your mysql root password. The third line resets the the admin user password to "admin".
