How to copy passwords from modded phpbb2?

Post by szulik » Sat Jan 11, 2014 12:32 pm

I'm trying to convert modded phpbb2 (version by Przemo) into phpbb3. Using built-in converter everything works fine, except users' passwords. I know that passwords from clean phpbb2 must be reset by users after conversion. However my modded forum seems to use the same way of coding/hashing password as phpbb3 does. When I manually copied in phpmyadmin password hash from old database into new one (phpbb3) the user could log in phpbb3 without changing password (I've also changed user_pass-convert to 0).

How can I change converter to just copy hashes instead of converting them?
Or maybe it would be easier to copy all hashes in phpmyadmin, but how?

Thank you in advance for your help!
