How to retrieve admin section password of plesk using command prompt

If you have SSH access of your server and accidentally you have forgot the password of your Plesk based control panel then. Still you can get/retrieve the password by just logging to your server through SSH and then just type below command on your terminal

/etc/psa/.psa.shadow

Note: the location of your password might changed based on your current version of your plesk. I have checked this command with version 9. To check your current version you can just search your current version of your plesk by just running below command.

rpm – qa | grep plesk
