Service is not available now, probably your Plesk is misconfigured.

Contact Your provider for details.

Internal Plesk error occurred: Unable to connect to database: saved admin password is incorrect.




you will need to edit the mysql config file

add skip-grant-tables under mysqld


then restart mysql

connect to the mysql db

issue the following command

UPDATE mysql.user SET Password=PASSWORD('new_pwd') WHERE User='admin';



exit mysql ,

remove the skip-grant-tables from the mysqld config

restart mysql

*also very the password matches /etc/psa/.psa.shadow

cat /etc/psa/.psa.shadow
