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:

http://www.dolcevie.com/js/converter.html

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

edit:

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'
