How can i decrypt like the phpbb3 decryption?

Post by clinton4 »


I'am going to use the phpbb_user table fore another user system and need therefore a function that can decrypt the password that is being typed by the user to compare the password hash in the phpbb_user table. I have checked the files function.php and auth_db.php, but i don't understand how to use the information in there. So, can anybody pleace show me an example of a function that will give the same output as the phpbb3 decryption?

It's md5 hashed, one way only, not encrypted. But anyways, this may help, or search the phpBB3.0 support forums for hash ... hilit=hash
