The developer who created a platform my company uses is no longer working for us and I don't know how I can retrieve the passwords from a custom PHP application
When I look in the PHPmyAdmin the passwords are ecrypted (eg *2470C0C06DEE42FD1618BB99005ADCA2EC9D1E19)
How can I change or retrieve these?
If a proper encryption method was used, it's not going to be possible to easily retrieve them.
Just reset them with new passwords.
Edit: The string looks like it is using
UPDATE user SET password = PASSWORD("newpassword");
