    Something’s getting lost in translation. I only know that aperitif is a drink before dinner.

    I would like to know if and how you can see the password of my users

    We can’t see the passwords of our users. You as Super/Site Admin can change it by going to the respective user’s profile page or via phpMyAdmin

    thanks for the fix, can you tell me in which file search on phpMyAdmin for the passuord of my users, they are encrypted?
    grazie, a presto
    p.s:scusate eventuali errori

    You can’t actually see the real password of your users. You’ll only ever see an encrypted or hashed password.

    If you need to change a user’s password, you need to do it through WordPress.

    WP Codex is your friend:


    via phpMyAdmin http://codex.wordpress.org/Resetting_Your_Password#Through_phpMyAdmin

    The easier way is via dashboard as Site/Super Admin. Use the phpMyAdmin way if you need to reset a lot of passwords or if you as Admin can’t log in the usual way for some reason or another (incl. a hack or rogue plugin, etc.)

    again many thanks for your answers,
    I understand how change your password through phpMyAdmin, but my question is how to decrypt the passwords of my users: I seemed to understand that these passwords are encrypted in md5, but the online calculators give me a false value for example I give you the password one of my user, can crack?


    many thanks again, you are really available.

    If you’ve searched online, you would know that it’s almost impossible to decrypt md5 encrypted passwords. Hard-core hackers or those in md5 security enforcement could do this, but it’s very very hard to do that’s why decryption services are paid/premium. Why you even want to go this route are your own, but this is the wrong forum to ask decryption services.
