I have lost my administrator password for Sitebuilder, and I can not reset it anywhere. How do I reset Plesk Sitebuilder admin password?

Applicable to:

  • Plesk Sitebuilder for Linux
  • Web Presence Builder for Linux

Resolution

For version 2.x

To reset Plesk Sitebuilder v.2.x admin password you should run following command:

~# mysql -usb_user -psb_user sitebuilder -e "update sb_users set pswd=password('new_password') where id=1;"

For versions 3.x and 4.x

Your first login is performed with the default Plesk Sitebuilder credentials, if it was clean Plesk Sitebuilder installation but not upgrade from previous version:

  • User name: admin
  • Password: admin

If you forgot Plesk Sitebuilder admin password you can reset it with help of sb_config utility:

    ~# sb_config --sb_admin_passwd <new_password>

or with following command:

~# mysql -u<username> -p<password> <dbname> -e "update user set user_password=md5('<new_password>') where user_name='<admin_login_name>';"

<admin_login_name> - administrator name for Plesk Sitebuilder.
<new_password> - your new password.

<username> , <password> , <dbname> values you can get from [SITEBUILDER_ROOT]/config file, as in example:

[database]
password = ****************
dbname = sitebuilder3
username = sitebuilder_db

It is also possible to use "Forgot your password?" feautre which could be accessed on main Plesk Sitebuilder logon screen.
