Support » Fixing WordPress » Migrating user passwords from custom CMS to WordPress

  • Hi,

    I need to migrate user accounts from a custom CMS to WordPress, but I’m trying to work out how I can do this without having to reset all the passwords.

    Looking at the source code of the custom CMS, the passwords are encrypted using:

    $encryptpass = crypt($password, $salt);

    (with $salt being a sub-string of the username)

    The question is, can and should I change the WordPress password encryption to use the above encryption method? If so, how would I do this?

    Thanks.
