How to recover forgotten MySQL User Passwords
Recently I needed to know a user schema password because of a third party supplied script, but I didn't know it. To get over this, I got the hash from the user table and then popped over to https://crackstation.net
The site has precomputed rainbow tables for MD5 and SHA1 hashes. Within a second the password popped up and we could run the script. This is a new system so we couldn't just change the password while we are understanding the new system.
This is a handy site to keep around.
I am always interested in your thoughts so if you have any comments or feedback then please feel free to add any comments, or you can mail me here.
