Import Users from CSV
[resolved] Importing Passwords (3 posts)

    I am importing about a thousand users that we had from a drupal instal. I have created the CSV file and I was hoping to use the passwords (Already in MD5 format) from the old site.

    Is there a way to import the users with your plug-in but have the password import directly to the database and not convert the MD5 to MD5 again?

    Yes, I have done this successfully with MD5 Password Hashes plugin. I know the plugin page warns that it hasn't been updated in over two years. But I haven't had any trouble with it. YMMV.

    Perhaps I should clarify: I installed the MD5 Password Hashes plugin and then imported directly into the database using PhpMyAdmin, not "Import Users from CSV"; after getting the accounts in the database with minimal information (username, password, user id), I then used "Import Users from CSV" to update the accounts with the rest of their information (first name, last name, and all the user_meta fields). I did this for over 600 users with over ten meta fields each.

    Good luck!
