user's password in phpmyadmin keeps changing

  • I believe the password field contains the MD5 hash of the login id AND the password together (no spaces in between). I know JOOMLA created password hashes this way as a means of making sure that the login ID and the password were correctly-matched.

    So, maybe try hashing the login AND the password for the password field?

    No – it contains the password only.

    Okay. Thanks for that.

    Well then,

    His other problem may have to do with the numeric format, IE the “base notation”. A normal MD5 hash output is in base-16 (otherwise known has hexadecimal). The password fields in the database table for users are not in hexadecimal format. – This may be where his problem is.

    I am unsure what base-numerics are used to encode the passwords, but I DO know they are not the hexadecimal notation that MD5 and other hashing-functions output.
