SymptomsAfter you upgrade Parallels Plesk Panel to version 10.2, you may notice that the administrator's password (in the /etc/psa/.psa.shadow file) is not encrypted. However, this password is encrypted if you perform a clean installation.
ResolutionWe intentionally do not encrypt the password during Parallels Plesk Panel upgrades to avoid possible compatibility problems.
To encrypt the password manually, use this command-line call:
# /usr/local/psa/bin/init_conf -u -passwd <password> -encrypted-password
To decrypt the password, run the following:
# /usr/local/psa/bin/init_conf -u -passwd <password> -plain-password
