PASSWORD_SALT in site.php file.

Permalink 1 user found helpful
The PASSWORD_SALT entry in site.php is only used to salt the user passwords created from the C5 console admin, correct? I mean it has nothing to do with the c5 database user and password set in the site.php file, correct ?

Thanks

That's correct, the PASSWORD_SALT isn't anything to do with the connection to the mysql database.

I've never had to touch it on a site, it gets generated when a site is installed and that's it. You just have to make sure you don't remove it or overwrite it with something else, and remember to carry it across if you do any migrations.

Thanks. I have a dev build which has a certain value of SALT value and I am carrying it over to QA and my production site. Thanks !

Is there no way to recover it then? I also need db_password as well...
