  1. How to decrypt MySQL admin password?

  2. Is there a way to get Mysql admin password in plain text?


MySQL admin password is saved in the "user" table as an encrypted value and it is not possible to get the password from the database in plain text.

If the password is lost, the only solution is to reset it using the instructions from the article #116050.
