You know when you type an FTP password into Dreamweaver, it turns it into little stars? Well what if for some reason, you need to know what that password is?
The answer for the credit goes to this article from Daft Logic: Decode / Recover Dreamweaver Password.
On this website, you export the website (from Dreamweaver, Manage Sites -> Pick Site -> Export) and it will come out as an .ste file. This is a text file you can open and read. The password is preceeded by something obvious like “pw”. But it’s encrypted. That’s why Daft Logic’s site is great, it will decode it for you.
Thank you to Daft Logic!Jill
