    I need to change my password for user admin by hand because I cant do that by web interface. I try changin the file /etc/psa/.psa_shadow and in mysql, using the query:

    update mysql.user set password=password('new_password') where user='admin';

    But this failed. Plesk give an error of wrong password. Anyone knows how to do this ?? Thanks,
