So here's the story. We are moving to a new web host. In the process we need to move our MySQL database over. We have the Database.SQL file, and within it we found our password for Administrator. This password is encrypted with a HASH algorythm. We need to create a new database with this password, but we do not remember the Admin password, and our only hope is a 32-character alpha-numeric password (HASH).

Anyone know of any FREE websites/tools to help us with this.

is the software open source? You might be able to temporarily circumvent the password verification so you can login, then use the software's change-password functionality, and then undo your code changes mentioned earlier.

That or just obtain the MD5 of whatever you want the password to be, and manually update the MD5 hash in the database and then login with the new password.

That's genious, I dont why I didnt think of that. Let me understand clearly. Find out the HASH for "Hello", and just replace the existing HASH with the HASH for Hello?
