Password Hash algorithms


Can i change the user’s password hash with MD5-Crypt?. I want to use MD5-Crypt hash algorithms for my user database.

No, there is no option to use other hash algorithms (you can always change the code). If you care about security, don’t use md5 for hashing passwords at all. I suppose you want to use it with a common user database with a different service, rather change the hashing of this other service. And it would be cleaner, to use a proper external authentication app. But again, I wouldn’t use anything which still uses md5-hashed passwords.

Hi tflidd,

Thanks for your reply.
