    Default Password Encryption

    I have completed a portion of customization which allows me to create multiple sites with multiple administrators using Open Realty. I have the need to display all of the agent and administrator passwords but im not sure how to pull the md5 encrypted password in an unencrypted format. Please advise if this is possible.

    OR passwords are encrypted when they are saved to the database. There is no way to display their actual values.

    What you mean by saying display? Show all passwords on page? Why you need that?
    Encryption is simple. Once encrypted never can be decrypted. You can use libraries to search hash match, then you will know value of it.

    If you only need to check password in database you can simply do that:

    PHP Code:
    $input_pass_hash md5($_POST['pass']);

    mysql_query("SELECT * FROM db WHERE passwords_hashes = '$input_pass_hash'"
    then count mysql num rows, but there is a lot of other ways to do that. Cheers

    You can't. All you can do is compare the hash that is stored in the DB to a hash created using md5 for authentication purposes.
