I have done some searching as see that Concrete uses SALT encryption.
How do I convert an entered password into a password that is compatible with concrete?
I am confiused because "By default PHP uses a two character DES salt string, however if your system standard is MD5, a 12-character salt string is used." but the password_salt in the site.php is longer than the standard MD5.
How can I, in php, convert a string such as "123456" into a password that I can enter in to the MySQL database?
It's probably the safest way to check out the code. I guess the salt isn't been used a lot of times..
Then what php script do I need to save this as an $encryptedpassword value?
Many thanks for your prompt replies !
What I am trying to achieve is through this external script to concrete5 is where a user registers but it creates the relevant encrypted password so that I can do a MySQL insert command to add them as a user.
