You subsonic password?

Look on the subsonic server in /var/subsonic/db (or c:\subsonic\db) for a file called subsonic.script. In this file you should find some text that looks like this:

Code: Select all
INSERT INTO USER VALUES('your_username','enc:70617373776f7264',0,0,0,FALSE)

The values will differ from that above. The important part is the 'enc:70617373776f7264'. Take the part after the colon (represented here by '70617373776f7264') and plug it into the hex2asii converter at:

It should decode the hex and print the ascii password. If you decode my example above it should be 'password'.



You can, of course, decode the string without the use of the website above (but why would you?):

0x70 = 'p'
0x61 = 'a'
0x73 = 's'
0x73 = 's'
0x77 = 'w'
0x6f = 'o'
0x72 = 'r'
0x64 = 'd'

On Mac the file in question is /Library/Application Support/Subsonic/db/subsonic.script
