    Hello,

    I have around 700 passwords on my server that i need to find out as quick as possible, i know another way that i can do it. But if anyone knows how to retrive a account's password from WHM, help would be great.

    Best Regards,

    Jayson Cooke

    There is no need to know their passwords. Simply reset them if access is needed.

    They is a need, i have lost a mysql database containing all the usernames and passwords, if i could find the passwords from WHM then i'll be fine as i could rebuild that database.

    Thanks

    Problem Solved!

    Just made a liitle script so that the first time they login to the main site the password they use is updated the first time they login.

    I need it as well

    Jaycooke you said in the first post that you know another way, what is it?
    Does anybody else know how to retrieve those passwds, I need it for authentication. I mean when a user login to the memebers area, I want to check the password he enters.

    thanks,
    Avi
