A password of the Plesk “admin” user is lost.
How to get/reset it?
Connect to a Plesk server via SSH and use the instructions below.
Logging in to Plesk without the password
Use a one-time login link to log in to Plesk without a password. To generate the one-time login link:
Run the following command to generate two links: One – to access Plesk by its hostname, another – by server IP address:
# plesk login
Note: If a server hostname is not resolvable from the Internet, hostname link will not be generated.
Copy one of the generated links and open it in a web-browser. Once logged in, go to the Change Password page (or My Profile) to set a new password.
Resetting the password
Run the command below replacing ***** with your new password and keeping ‘ ‘ on the sides:
# plesk bin admin –set-admin-password -passwd ‘*****’
