    just installed fedora 10 with ispconfig 3, worked perfect the first time i logged in i changed the password, looked around, then logged out, now i can't login with either the admin admin, or the user/password i added

    mysql -h hostname -u root -p works

    i can go into ispdb in mysql and see the sys_user name and password

    phpmyadmin even works perfect

    any suggestions

    Please never change the mysql password of the ispconfig user manually. The old password is stored in the ispconfig files, take this password and use it to set the password in mysql back to the old value.

    Undo the changes that you manually did and it will start working again. As I posted above, the unencrypted password can be found in the file /usr/local/ispconfig/server/lib/

    cant login after change admin passwd

    I dont know if this is the same error ore i couldent understand the solution.

    But i just setup a new ispconfig 3 installation, and the first thing i did was to change the admin password and logout, then in but it tells me that i give the wrong password.

    How can i recover the password? via mysql och change in some file ?

    This thraed is not about changing the administrator password for ispconfig. This thread is about internal mysql passwords in ispconfig.

    You can change the admin password in the sys_user table. The password has to be encrypted with crypt (crypt-md5 with salt).
