Need help Viewing Table users Password

Recommended Posts

the reson i need this is becase currenly i am workin on this offline and i have no other way of retiveing my password with a script that i plan on making later on.

Thank you

If you're asking what I think you're asking, the answer is no -- MySQL user passwords are encrypted with the PASSWORD() function, which uses a one-way hash. That's what makes them secure. I still don't understand _why_ you need this.
