- Plesk for Linux
When trying to create an additional administrator account using the
plesk bin admin_alias utility and transferring an encrypted password through the environment variable
PSA_CRYPTED_PASSWORD, the command fails as follows:
# PSA_CRYPTED_PASSWORD='$0***uhr7h8' plesk bin admin_alias --create jdoe -passwd '' -email 'firstname.lastname@example.org' -contact ''
Encrypted passwords are not supported
exit status 1
plesk bin admin_alias utility does not support hashing passwords.
It is possible to run
plesk bin admin_alias utility with the
PSA_PASSWORD variable, which will encrypt the password in the database:
- Connect to the server via SSH.
- Run the following command:
# PSA_PASSWORD='mysecret' plesk bin admin_alias --create jdoe -passwd '' -email 'email@example.com' -contact ''
