User Passwords

Is there no way to retreive user passwords as with regular users?

You can see MySQL user passwords in the real web panel, and I need them to run mysqldump on my various dbs..

mysql-add_hostname

I think there may be a mistake in the value section where it says:

hostname : the full hostname you want to serve as a mysql hostname (unless the domain following the first . is hosted with us, you will not be able to access phpMyAdmin from this hostname).

Shouldn't that read: unless the domain following the first . is hosted with us, you WILL be able to access phpMyAdmin from this hostname --Erutan409 (talk) 16:33, 14 January 2016 (PST)

No, the current version is correct. Let's say you have one domain on your account, "example.com", but it's not hosted with DreamHost. If you add a MySQL hostname under that domain, e.g. "mysql.example.com", you will not be able to access phpMyAdmin using that hostname, because DreamHost doesn't have any control over "example.com".

Ok, now it makes sense after your explanation and me reading that one more time. How the sentence is to be interpreted is how I already understood it. There's some negation in that sentence followed by a condition, that asserts another condition. So, it was a little difficult to follow. Thank you! --Erutan409 (talk) 17:02, 14 January 2016 (PST)
