    Post zimbra mysql root decrypted password

    Hello,
    this command gets the mysql encrypted password
    zmlocalconfig -s | grep password

    How to successfully decrypt the password to be able to login with the mysql root password?

    Default

    You can't decrypt zimbra's mysql password but you can change it.

    from console as root
    su zimbra
    zmmypasswd --root <newpass>;

    to change password for user zimbra just type
    zmmypasswd <newpass>

    Default original password

    Do you mean that the original password that the installation sets is unkown, because the installation doesn't tell zimbra or the mysql root password.
    So, the only solution to login to mysql is to change the password??

    I think the passwords created during installation are random, not unknown. It could be logged somewhere in which I don't know and don't care. As long as I can change it, it's fine.

    I spent a little time trying to figure out how to find the un-encrypted password as well.

    hint: It's not encrypted, just obscure(which it should be).

    artimus is correct...the password is not encrypted it is just a long string of characters that look like they are the encrypted form of something else.
