Finding the SQL password in VestaCP

- Posted in Quick Tip by with comments

I've been playing with VestaCP lately, getting it all set up the way I like and I had a need to manually edit the databases and found that there was a root password set that I never set.

The password is hidden away in a file, to get to it do this:

sudo nano /usr/local/vesta/conf/mysql.conf

You'll find the password in there :)
