    If it is YOUR RaQ do you have the admin password? Many times that is the same as the root password. You can always change the users password if you can get to that point. Since you can get into SSH... then you should be able to...

    The same place all the passwords are stored... in the password file.

    the file is /etc/passwd and etc/shadow... but you won't be able to get the password from that file. If you look the password is changed to mumbo-jumbo... so people can't get the password from it.

    What is wrong with the admin area?

    when i click on edit site (lil green wrench icon) in manage sites it goes to page not found. Which is nice and ironic because I was moving all of the sites to a new server and would have only been using the raq for about 20 more minutes. Working fine for months and months, and it dies in the last hour it would have been in use.
    I'm tryign to update my ChiliSoft. ASP stopped working soon after so i'm gonna update to that new ASP.

    I don't know if that's going to fix it, but I just need to ftp into like 3 accounts and download their files to put on the new server. Any ideas how I can do this?

    Like I suggested before... if you can log in as root via SSH then reset the passwords for those accounts... do you have the passwords for the new server? Wouldn't they be the same?
