I have a linux pc on which several users are configured to login. for the same PC i have the root access (username and password). I have lost one of the user accounts password. How to get back the password for that particular user account. I have tried the following being a root user
passwd <login name> Enter new password confirm new password
But its not fruitful could you please suggest some ways of recoverng the password.
Also,I got to know that passwords are stored in /etc/shadow file in encrypted form. Does anyone know how to get the decrypted form of encrypted password.
