Recover 3CX Admin Password

If you have forgotten your 3CX Admin password there is no need to reinstall 3CX.

Step 1
Create a 3CX Backup using the 3CX Backup and Restore Tool and save to your desktop.

This will output the backup to a compressed ZIP File

Unzip the backup file and open the contents.

Step 2

Open the .XML file which is located on the main folder of the backup in Notepad

Step 3

Use the Notepad find feature to look for WEBSERVERPASS

You should see contents like below


     
<Parameter>
            <Value>Thepassword</Value>
            <Type>Int32</Type>
            <Description>The admin pass</Description>
            <Name>WEBSERVERPASS</Name>
        </Parameter>


       
The parameter value contains the password and in this case the password was set to Thepassword
