How are passwords stored?

  • Hello,

    Rather then searching through all the wp files. I thought I would ask how user passwords are stored into the database. I’m creating a separate register page and I wanted to use this wp function:

    wp_create_user($username, $password, $email);

    Are the passwords stored using md5() and does using the above function do that for you?

    Thanks in advanced!

  • The passwords are stored via MD5. Take a look at the function wp_insert_user within wp-includes/registration.php

    Hope this helps,
