Plesk12 what is the root password for MySQL?

Parallels Plesk Panel renames ‘root’ mysql account to ‘admin’ when the Panel is installed.
To get root privileges in mysql simply login with the ‘admin’ username instead. The password is the same as the admin password in Parallels Plesk Panel.

On server with Parallels Plesk Panel versions 8.x, 9.x and above admin password is stored in file /etc/psa/.psa.shadow. Use the following command to get the password:

~# cat /etc/psa/.psa.shadow

Since version 10 admin password stored in file /etc/psa/.psa.shadow is encrypted. Use the following command to get admin password in plain text:

~# /usr/local/psa/bin/admin –show-password

Despite version of Parallels Plesk Panel you may use the following command to login to mysql with root privileges:

~# mysql -uadmin -p`cat /etc/psa/.psa.shadow`

Reset Windows 7 Password with Windows Installation CD

Here is an easy way to reset Windows 7 password, without having to buy or download any third-party software.

Step 1
In order to do this, you must have a Windows installation CD or DVD. Any Windows 7, Vista or XP CD or DVD will work.

First you have to boot from the installation CD. Most PC’s are already set up to use the CD/DVD drive as the first boot device, which means you only have to insert the CD/DVD and restart the PC. Before Windows begins to load, you will see a message that says “press any key to boot from CD”, just press any key. However, if your PC is not set up to boot from the CD/DVD first, you will have to set it as your first boot device in the BIOS setup. If you don’t know how, it’s really easy.
