Reset a forgotten serveradmin password

To reset the query admin password a server restart is required. Please stop your TeamSpeak 3 server and then launch it with the additional parameter:

./ inifile=ts3server.ini serveradmin_password=test1234

You should skip the inifile parameter if you’re not using an ini file when starting the server.
