I don't want to just go in there, and blindly replace everything that says md5 to sha1,

I'm wondering if theres anything that I would have to prevent from being editied if I do this?

Core edit. Or create your own registration page. Change md5 to sha1.

btw, its still not secure. I have heard/read that blowfish seems to be a nice password encryption algo. google.

Remember to hash password with a string (salt).

That's all.

Actually, what I'm going to do is test this new thing.


I added a function to inc/init.php that'll use the encryption stuff, so if I have any bugs/chagnes/whatever I can edit it there.


let's hope it works.

And I might use that once I actually get this shit setup lol
