I have just started my website and linked it up to MySQL databasee. unfortunatly something went wrong and my data was scrambeled. If any one could tell me or just help me to uncoding the mess that would be good. The main problem is that my essential password for my server got scrambled to this:
so if anyone could help me start to unravel it the would be good. Thanks

It didn't get "scrambled". It got encrypted. And MySQL can use (and probably used here) a one-way encryption algorithm.

That is, an encryption algorithm that is designed to never go "the other way" and allow you do find the password from the encrypted version.

So your only hope is to try every password you might have used and hope that you get the right one---the one that is encrypted to that value.
