    Im in the process of trying out a new cloud service mail and would like to be able to view/export user email and passwords from ispconfig. I know its possible via a sql script via phpmyadmin before when I was handling another server few years ago. it was a saved script that converts the md5 hash to plain password. I dont have it now. Anyone know how?

    The plaintext passwords can not be retrieved and passwords are not stored as md5 in ISPConfig, ISPConfig uses crypt to has passwords in the same way that Linux stores them in /etc/passwd file, so a salt is used which means that you can not decode them easily (which is on purpose of course).

    oh totally different from i think it was Plesk that I handled years ago.
    how do you suggest i proceed with this aside from manually resetting all passwords?

    thanks Till!

    If the new e-mail system supports the sama hash, you can copy the hash and the password stays the same.
    Otherwise I would say only way is to reset passwords and send the new password to users.

    @Taleman aw thats sad. Nah i dont think its on the same platform and the csv file they require for upload to auto create the users requires the passwords in plaintext
