This feature is not available in Plesk 12.5 . Currently it is under review, you can track its status on Plesk uservoice portal .

Plesk 12 or earlier :

  1. Create psa database backup:

    # mysqldump -uadmin -p`cat /etc/psa/.psa.shadow` psa > psa_dump.sql
  2. Login to Plesk database:

    # mysql -uadmin -p`cat /etc/psa/.psa.shadow` psa
  3. Run the following query to force password change:

    mysql> update misc set val='false' where param='psa_configured';
