Well, this has to do with php probably more than sql, so I'm posting it here.
Well...I was wondering if there is a way to decrypt passwords that are set by mysql.
Such as if I make a password field and whenever I store an item using PASSWORD('item'), it encrypts 'item', when retrieving that field is there any way to decrypt it?

hmm, that's weird then...why even do it if there is no method of decryption? :x

That's just the way it is. If a password is that insecure, why set a password in the first place?
