How to reset linux plesk admin password

#cat /etc/psa/.psa.shadow (This holds psa admin password)
#/etc/rc.d/init.d/psa stop (This stops Plesk and everything it runs.) #/usr/local/psa/mysql/bin/safe_mysqld –skip-grant-tables & or
#/usr/bin/safe_mysqld –skip-grant-tables & (This starts up MySQL, bypassing the grant [password] tables.)
#/usr/local/psa/mysql/bin/mysql mysql (You’re now in a mysql command line.)
#use mysql;
#FLUSH PRIVILEGES; (This flushes everything out – too long to explain.)
#SET PASSWORD FOR admin=PASSWORD(‘your-password-here’); (Type that exactly as above, where ‘your-password-here’ is.
#exit (You exit the mysql command line and return to root.)
#killall mysqld or
#/etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld restart (Shuts down the mysql daemon.)
#/etc/rc.d/init.d/psa start (Starts Plesk back up, which restarts the mysql daemon which has your new password in it.)

Have fun!
