    I have inherited a SuSe box running ISPConfig. I have little or no knowledge of how its configured but have managed to find an SFTP password which works so I can upload files and can SSH to the box.

    I have run the /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server start to kick off the web GUI but I dont know the password for this

    Tried the root password I use for SSH no joy

    Is there a default (if the muppet who installed it never changed it) or a way to reset from the SSH session

    Ta v much

    Thanks tried that one already

    I presume it must have been changed so I need to reset it.

    You can use ISPConfig's phpMyAdmin to reset the password. Go to
    http(s)://<yourispconfigaddress>:81/phpmyadmin , then select the ISPConfig database and there the table sys_user. You can modify the admin password, but make sure that you encrypt it with the MD5 funtion when you save it.

    Ok I think we are getting somewhere

    I tried your suggestion and I get a 404 error for directory /phpmyadmin

    It feels like the previous admin hasnt installed all the components or hasnt done it correctly
