Hi all,

Is there any easy way to avoid jForum not encrypting user's passwords. Is there any option in configuration/properties file where I can change it.

Currently it is using MD5 encryption, correct me if I am wrong.

Many Thanks,

Iqbal

Well, because I wanted to make a simple class which will add users to jforum_users at the same time when they register in my webapp, this way I can use sso and display their name in jForum rather thn the dummy Annonymous name being displayed.

I use in one of my webapp SHA1, but havent seen any significance to it.


Regards,


Iqbal

Also u must increase user_password column to 128 bytes in table jforum_users and run SQL script:
UPDATE jforum_users SET user_password=c7ad44cbad762a5da0a452f9e854fdc1e0e7a52a38015f23f3eab1d80b931dd472634dfac71cd34ebc35d16ab7fb8a90c81f975113d6c7538dc69dd8de9077ec WHERE user_id=2

Then u can login as admin with password admin.
