Silly Me: MD5 Feature on PHPMyAdmin

Today, I lost forget a password that I stored in my local database (MySQL). The password was hashed using MD5 so I can’t read it using PHPMyAdmin. So, I decided to create new hash using MD5 too. I use this script to do same thing since few months ago:

< ?php // usage: php.exe md5.php password echo md5($argv[1]); ?>

c:php4>php.exe md5 p455w0rd
Content-type: text/html


My friend saw me doing this and laughing for a while. Then he said that PHPMyAdmin has a tool to auto generate md5 password:
MD5 hash using PHPMyAdmin

What a DH&AYD&*A ^o^



  1. oh kakak pertama, sepertinya kita memang senasib.. kesian banget dah 🙁

  2. When I lost my md5 hashed password, I went to my FreeBSD shell and type:
    md5 -s newPassword


  3. was your password p455w0rd perchance?
