Converting joomla passwords for other applications

Postby lucasvfr » Mon Dec 27, 2010 6:43 pm

Hi guys,

I'm running into an issue were I must be able to run a script to copy the user/pass data from joomla database into an application database. the issue here is that the application in configured to validate users using base64_encode(pack(' H*',Sha1($password))), from what I've seen joomla uses an base64_encode(md5()), and something about salt, wich I do not fully understand.
the aproach that I would try would be 1 - find a way to "stage the conversion, with a php script,
were the password conversion would take place, 2- insert into the applications database.
anyone ever had/solved this issue?
