How can I recover the admin password from a Backup?

I have lost my credentials, how can I recover them from a backup?

  1. You will need to have access to a backup file, in case it is encrypted you also need the decryption key
  2. Extract that backup zip file
  3. Within the extracted folder open the file ********DB.xml (where * is a random string of numbers)
  4. For the password, search for "WEBSERVERPASS"
  5. For the login, search for "WEBSERVERUSER"
