    Hi and welcome to our Elastix Forum.

    Every user are into /var/www/acl.db, and admin account too.

    You can edit this account and copy a password from another account.
    You can use SQLitebrowser 2.0. (use google).

    Else, you could try with: c155c4062013ab3101e519c45c631621
    Replace your old password by this, it's "elastix"

    Regards

    It's impossible to see the password!
    The password is coded MD5.

    So....

    try this

    Code:

    sqlite3 /var/www/db/acl.db "update acl_user set md5_password='7a5210c173ea40c03205a5de7dcd4cb0' where id=1"

    That sould update the password as "palosanto"

    If you are inquisitive enough

    you could keep on trying:

    echo guessedpassword|md5sum

    until you get a match with what's there right now, if you have a pocketful of "well known passwords" you might get lucky quite quickly if not the listen to rafael
