  • Password & salt encryption

    I have been thinking either to use impex, or to custom code this into my registration script.
    Any way, i have a script to register an account on another of my databases (non-vbulletin).
    Passwords are stored in plan text.

    I want the user to be added to the vbulletin database, and I dunno if it would be smartest to add them via the registration script or via impex.

    I'm kinda stuck with my own registration script, as i got this:

    $sql = "INSERT INTO user SET username='".$in_user."' , usergroupid=2 , passworddate=0000-00-00 , email='".$in_email."' , showvbcode=1 , usertitle=Member , customtitle=0, joindate='".$time."'
    But I don't really know how to insert the password or salt..

    If i used impex, would it be possible to run impex as a cron, and how could i set it up for my own database? I tried to read this thread:
    But it didn't help me much :/

    Please advice, thank you very much

    You will be best off using the 'User' datamanager. Here's an older thread at

    That might get you started or perhaps there is some newer information over there for vB4 if you search around.
    If you read it online, it must be true.
