Hello,

I have a website and I manage it using the backend application. The backend application is protected by an .htaccess username and password.

I still have FTP access to my site, can you please let me know if it's possible to get the username and password because I forgot them?
I guess we can find them in a text file somewhere on my server right? And if you know where to find the uesrname and password, in case they were encyrpted, is there any tool to decrypt them to get the real username and password.

My site is built in php.

Thanks
