  • Hello Dollar1,

    Thanks for your post.

    What do you mean "i cannot find the password table"? Could you please describe this problem more specific? Based on my understanding, the main concern is about how to encrypt the password in mysql database. Is it so? Below links describes how to implement encrypted passwords using MD5. Please check, hope them helpful.

  • The fact that the password table uses MD5 should be of no concern.

    But the question here is what exactly are you trying to do? You imply you have access to the servers database: is this correct? To login, you would use a password which will be MD5 hashed and compared to your hashed password in the database.

    Bottom line is, what are you exactly trying to do, as your comment regarding access to a passwords table is troubling.
