Not Solved [How To?] What encryption does myBB use for passwords?
#6
Not Solved

The login mechanism will need to use both the old and new algorithms then update the stored password using the new algorithm.

Yes, I understand. So, the sooner the better to ensure most people get protected.

Okay, so I'm gonna delay installing that mod. I'm not a big fan of mods that make drastic changes to the DB / core functions. I much prefer native adoption of such changes to ensure upgrading goes smoothly.
