    Hello all,

    Sorry for my bad English! I have a script who send the password to the users. The problem is; the password is encrypt. Is there a way to fix this, is it possible with my last line? I read almost all message on this board cannot find anything about this

    $result = mysql_query ("SELECT user_name,email,password FROM users WHERE email = '$email'",$con);
    if ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))

    $msg=$row["user_name"].", your password is:".$row["password"];

    Thank You!

    That depends on how you encrypted the password. If you used mysql's password() function to encrypt, then no you can't decrypt it.
