Maybe my question has already been asked before, but I couldn't find any information about it. I want to set up a website where you have to register yourself. That is to say, that the user has to register with the board (phpBB3) at first. Later you have to enter your data from the forums into a form and to submit these information to my website script. (Website and forums are on the same server...)
I want to check, if a user has a forum account, and then he can get a website account. But to check if he has a forum account I need to ask for the login data. I heard that phpBB3 uses md5 again to encrypt the passwords. But if I use md5 to encrypt the user given password there is another md5-hash than the one in the phpBB3-user-table.
How is the password of phpBB3 encrypted or what is wrong with my way to check, if a user has already a forum account?
Can someone help me? I want to fix that bug in my website as fast as possible but I do not have any more ideas.
