External Database Authentication Reloaded
exact web interface string for sha512 (2 posts)

    Hi, thank you for the plugin.

    I am authenticating from external database with sha512 hashed passwords using "Other" field and the following line as the hash code:

    $password2 = hash('sha512', $password);

    It gives me the ability to share common credentials between WordPress, Openfire and Dovecot. Took me quite some time though to figure out if I needed quotes around password (no) and semicolon at the end (yes). Perhaps a few examples about "Other" hashing possibilities in FAQ would make this great and surprisingly unique plugin more accessible to us sysadmins.

    I am trying to work out how to do this for md5 salted password, I agree with Pacija that a few samples of other possibilities would be helpful because I have no idea where to start.
