    What encryption type (SHA1/MD5)should be used for customer database password import?

    ejungleboy

      I'm migrating a site over but couldn't find anywhere in the forum etc. that stated what encryption type is required for database import.  I figured I'd just set the password field to an initial generic value and have the customers update it.  I entered the password field in a plain text but once imported, the generic field doesn't work.

       

      If the import simply plops this field in as is without encrypting it in the process, I need to process it prior to import.  Can anyone tell me if it's MD5/SHA1/other to save me some reimporting time?  Or tell me how the import is supposed to work with passwords?

       

      Thanks.
