Recommended Posts

Hello,

okay i am workin on a Login script that needs MYSQL, and i was woundering if theres any way of me viewing a usernames password, becase as you can see the login passes viewed on the mysql databases are decypted and very long for a very short password.

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.
