You can't look up a password that you've used the ?action=attr method
to assign to an individual page or group -- those passwords are
encrypted at the time they're set, and can't be looked-up after the

The admin password set in your config.php file will over-ride any
password set via this method, but if you don't want to use the admin
password -- or if you want to be able to give out this page or group's
password to someone and don't want to have to give the admin password
(a good reason for setting the page or group's own password via the
?action=attr method in the first place) -- then your only recourse is
to re-set it.

Hoping that helps.
