Re: md5 passwords issue

MD5 Password is a password recovery tool for security professionals, which can be used to decrypt a password if its MD5 hash is known. If the file specification is a wildcard, each matching file is processed in an order determined by the operating system (or file system).

Re: md5 passwords issue

You can't decode a MD5 hash as it isn't decodable. "htpasswd encrypts passwords using either a version of MD5 modified for Apache, or the system's crypt() routine. Just try to reset it. Files managed by htpasswd may contain both types of passwords; some user records may have MD5-encrypted passwords while others in the same file may have passwords encrypted with crypt()."

Re: md5 passwords issue

You need the qutoes as your dealing with a string. The MD5 algorithm used by htpasswd is specific to the Apache software, passwords encrypted using it will not be usable with other Web servers." Try ou the following code:-
Quote:
$ID = $_GET["ID"];
$UserResult = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM tblUsers WHERE md5(UserID)='".$ID."' ")or die (mysql_error());
