Password lost... Cant Login?
I have a Linux web filtering server and have lost the password, is there any way of resetting or removing it?
I have access to the Linux hard drives files as I have removed the Linux hard drive from the server and connected it to my PC.
I've managed to remove the password on the Grub boot screen by removing the MD5 password from the /boot/grub/ menu.lst
The problem is I cant remove the password or log in to the server as its asking for the password...
I have edited the passwd file in \etc\ by removing the X in the following code:
I have also edited the shadow file in etc\ and removed the "$1$8aTC.PY6$rxbnKK5au/ZMsR0ekGWSZ1" in the following code:
But whenever I try to login I get a "Password Denied" message.
How can I remove the password and gain access to the server?
Please help and thanks in advance.
