Change root password from normal account
Posted on 2006-11-20
I would imagine this is not possible, however I do not have physical access to this machine, nor do I remember the root password for this server. I do have my own account that has administrative privileges, however I'd like to recover the root password somehow.
The server is a FreeBSD box running just qmail acting as a mail relay server. Any ideas as to how I can recover the root password using a normal account from a remote location?
Thanks for any advice.
