How to reset admin password

This blog post explains how to restore passwords from the command line if you forget two super admin passwords given by default after Splynx installation.

These are two super admin passwords that you receive after Splynx installation.

Administrator added, login: admin, password: XXXXXXXX
Administrator added, login: splynx, password: XXXXXXXX

If you forget these passwords, you can restore them from the command line.

Open script folder:

cd /var/www/splynx/system/script/

Run command ./passwd and receive a help message:

IspFramework passwd script, version: 1.0.dev.

Usage:
./passwd admin –login=<admin> –password=<password>

Change password for administrator <admin>:

./passwd customer –login=<login> –password=<password>

Change password for customer:

<login>, you can enter :ALL: for all customers, password not required.

Now you can change the password for admin login with the command:

./passwd admin --login=admin --password=NEW_PASSWORD
