DirectAdmin user and password

I've had to test some connectivity issues with pop and imap clients without having access to their account info.

"/etc/virtual/{domain.tld}/passwd" file holds their user and md5 password hash. Make sure to backup this file first.

Generate a new md5-based password hash:

openssl passwd -1

Edit "/etc/virtual/{domain.tld}/passwd" file replacing the password hash with the above.

Test login to mail.

Once debugging is finished, restore the file back.
