    - Open the ISPConfig database (for example through phpMyAdmin). The default database name is "dbispconfig".
    - Open the "sys_user" table.
    - Find your user
    - Change the value in the column "otp_type" to "none"

    Hello, I did the same.. I'm not understanding how the 2fa works.
    Where I can set the email of a user?
    Thanks

    The email address of a client is in his client details, and the email address of an admin is set under System > interface > main config.

    I am barely 24 hrs into ISPCONFIG 3 installation, whatever that lead me into attempting to implement the 2fac authentication feature is Oliver twist syndrome. Please how do i locate ISPConfig database through phpMyAdmin? Thank you

    The username of the administrative user of a MySQL database is "root".

    Don't worry about the above, but do have one question where can you add and email address for admin or any other CP admin user ?

    CP users get their email addresses from the corresponding client data. The admins email address is set under system > Interface > main config.

    We are using ISPConfig Hosting Controlpanel.
    Our IT Incharge has resigned and he didn't submited his emails credentials, which email address was for admin user . Badly I had to reset the password but can't login because he set a 2-factor authentication on that email id. How to reset that 2-factor authentication from ISP Config?
