    Just curious about cpanel's security

    Where are the user logins stored (actually passwords for user accounts, emails, etc)?

    I've done this before but cannot remember how.
    How does one decode a password in mysql databas?


    How would I see the actual password? One person locked out of his admin
    account on his forum and is practically screwed.

    it depends purely on how the passwords were encrypted in the first place, md5 and sha1 arent reversable, the only way you can get them back is to encode string until you get a match
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
