help: Pass in my server

It's not md5 it's SHA1.

Most people have some kind of registration page for their server, you could obtain the password in plaintext there with php.

If you just have the hash, you could try to brute force it, but it would take you hundreds of years if it's a good password. :P

Since a hash funtion is a one way function, there is no way to reconstruct the input from the hash.

Verifying the given password is simply done by creating the hash for it and compare it to the stored hash,

the server does not need to know the actual password.

If someone forgot his password you have to set a new one.
