I forgot Administrator's password. How can I log in now?


You can use the utility which will reset administrator's password to random value. Then it will inform you about administrator's login and password.

Just enter your box via ssh/telnet/another console session. After that:

1. Enter your Parallels Confixx installation directory (typically /root/confixx)

# cd /root/confixx

2. Run the

# ./
    New password for Confixx login "admin" is: zxCexZro

3. Enter the web panel with the new login/password and change them to the desired values.

You can also try --password key to set the password not to random value but to the value you specified:

# ./ --password MyPassword
New password for Confixx login "admin" is: MyPassword
