    Password reset?

    Hi guys, I've been playing around with creating a private server and I've forgotten the password to one of the ingame accounts. How do I reset it?

    I looked in the MySQL database but the password is encrypted and I don't want to just put a plain text password in there.

    Any help would be much appreciated

    Not sure about the correct way but I had a few thoughts. What if you created a new account temporally with the password you wanted and copy/pasted it over top the old account's password slot in the database? Or a plan b where you make a new account with the correct password than move the characters from the first account over to the new one?

    The correct way would be to hash the password first and replace it in the database. You can use http://www.sha1-online.com/ to get the hashed password. Just plop the output into the password field for the account in the SQL DB and it will work.
    For example,

    Password in Game: bob
    SHA1 Hash in SQL DB: 48181acd22b3edaebc8a447868a7df7ce629920a
