    Is it possible to retrieve passwords from the database? If you could, wouldn't it be xf_user?

    In any meaningful format? I hope not.

    Yes, but you can only get the method, the hash and the salt.

    For what reason would you want to do that?

    Maybe he wants to authorize another software against its XF user base?

    Maybe.

    That's why I'm asking. So I know what advice to give next.

    Maybe he has set a password on an account which he has since forgotten, but for that there is a different solution.

    Nevermind, I don't need this anymore.
