  • Password encryption?

    I'm wanting to upgrade a small forum from PHP Fusion. I know vBulletin doesn't import directly from there, but I'm really only interested in moving user accounts, and there's only about 20 of them. So I can do it manually, no big deal.

    My question: What encryption does vBulletin use? PHP Fusion uses MD5, and if vBulletin uses the same then I should be able to simply copy/paste the encrypted string from one database to another... correct?

    vBulletin uses a double md5 hash with a salt. If you can export your users into a CVS text file it would be more than possible to import it into vBulletin with the Impex cvs module
