ISPConfig 3 has two different configuration files, one for the server part and one for the interface.

ISPConfig 3 Interface

The config file location is:

/usr/local/ispconfig/interface/lib/config.inc.php

ISPConfig 3 Server

The config file location is:

/usr/local/ispconfig/server/lib/config.inc.php

The MySQL root password that is used to create new MySQL databases only is stored in the file:

/usr/local/ispconfig/server/lib/mysql_clientdb.conf

    Hi I just used this guide to update mysql root password, but it doesn’t work.
    The password is right and I restart apache2… I’m using ISPConfig 3.

    What can I do?

    Thanks

    Hi Till

    I have found may posts about how to change the default files on ipsconfig2 but when eve someone asks how to do it on ispconfig3 there are never any answers?

    Any chance you can end my search and let me know? The file in ispconfig2 was called config.lib.php that made it possible to set up additional directories and files when setting up a new site

    Thanks in advance!

    I have an ispconfig box Ubuntu 12.04 with the latest version of ispconfig installed. The password must have been mis-entered during setup. I need to reset the admin password. I have updated the passwort field in sys_user table but this didn’t work. I can access the dbispconfig from phpmyadmin using the root or dbispconfig password. But any attempt to loginto the web interface using any user fails. Any attempt to ftp to a site seems to fail. I have restarted mysql after each changed. Any help would be greatly appriceated.

      The uninstall.php file is in the install folder of the ispconfig tar.gz file.

      You have to be logged in as root user on the shell or use sudo when you use Ubuntu.
