Recovering the Plesk admin password on a linux install

December 26th, 2009

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.
