    Hello to all,
    I am developing a WordPress plugin and I need to know how user passwords are crypted in the database. Does anybody know the encryption system of WordPress 2.7 passwords in the database?

    Take a look at the following blog post, it provides good detail into the new password storage: http://barry.wordpress.com/2008/05/19/mod_auth_mysql-and-phpass/

    Hello Drawnserp,

    Can you make it as a single function ? I wish to create Sign Up page from my own site and allow users to login to wordpress also.. Is it possible to use any single function for password encryption & checking ?

    Thank You.

    Are you meaning the MD5 encryption that wordpress uses to encrypt the passwords? I know when I forgot my password I used a site that converts plain text into MD5 encrypted strings and I simply copied and pasted this MD5 string into my database and it reset my password.
