How to reset your GoDaddy VDED Simple Control Panel Password

After purchasing the GoDaddy virtual dedicated server (VDED) with the simple control panel, I got locked out of the simple control panel.  I could still SSH and FTP, but the simple control panel is a different login and mine wasn’t working.  I had to call support to get the solution – its a simple one and I’m not sure why they don’t just put it in the help center posts but I couldn’t find it there so I put it here… Hope this helps someone from waiting on the phone with support for 30 mins in the middle of the night like I did… Just run the following command from an SSH connection:

/usr/share/turbopanel/scripts/adminpasswd.pl
