    Hi!

    Is there any way to read a clients ftp password as a server admin? I sometimes have to do some maintenance on clients websites, and it would be very helpful to be able to just log in with their ftp account, without having to reset their password.

    The passwords are encrypted as one way hash with salt, so you cant decrpt them (at least if you dont want to make a brute force attack with a computer cluster on the hash to break it).

    Well, brute forcing with a cluster sounds a bit over the top. I guess I'll have to find another solution. :)
