User password (4 posts)

    I have seen the password is not codified in the database. This could be a dangerous problem. Don't think?
    I like methods like phpBB to codify the password. They use a database field of 32 caracters. When a user is registering, phpBB use php md5() function to codify and save in database.
    I think it could be more secure.
    Great work

    It's an option, look at the code.

    I can't understand. The database field for pass has 20 characters. It could not save a md5 codification, because this is 32 characters.
    I will try to modify on my own for this, and if it works I could say you (if you want)
    Thanks :)
