If you lost your 3CX admin credentials, you're not really in trouble as long as you have the 3CX backup šŸ˜Œ

Here's how to retrieve the admin password:
  1. You will need to have access to a backup file in case it's encrypted; you also need the decryption key
  2. Unzip or extract the backup file
  3. Within the extracted folder, open the xxxxxxxxxxDb.xml (where * is a random string of numbers)
  4. For the login password, search for "WEBSERVERPASS"
  5. For the login username, search for "WEBSERVERUSER"
For example:
