Recovering the Plesk admin password on a linux install

December 26th, 2009 by admin Leave a reply »

This will work on most installs and is very straight forward.

SSH into the server that you installed Plesk on.

Find the home directory of Plesk (generally /etc/psa)  and cat the “.psa.shadow” file.

This will display the admin password.
