I am very excited about the new password security in wordpress 2.5. I am already running a test blog with 2.5RC1, and I noticed that the password hashes are much more custom. Not to mention, there is a place in wp-config for a custom salt! That’s pretty cool!
But here’s my problem. What will happen to my existing users’ passwords if I customize that salt? And how will it verify the old users passwords once I update?
