I keep wondering about something regarding to some data stored in the PHPMyAdmin Database. For example, I had this
password varchar(120)
to hold user password. For testing purpose I used userTest as a username and test123 as user password. After registered, I checked back the data stored into the database and i found out that the password column holding different data inside. Instead of holding test123, it holds something like 0dcbd056919392554f346a10cc114d27. Compared to SQL Server Database, SQL Server DB holding the exact data entered by users.

What I have tried:

Even so, when I tried to login using username userTest and password test123, I still able to login. If the PHPMyAdmin Database is showing different data for the password, as an admin, how am I going to know users password through database if the data stored different from the one that user entered through the form? If I use the 0dcbd056919392554f346a10cc114d27 as user password, I can't login. Any suggestion?
