Hi there I wondered if there was anyone out there who could help me with a problem. I designed a PHP site, plain code and all, a number of years ago and it's worked great. Recently though I've been informed from my hosting company 1&1 that it would need to be updated from MySQL4 to 5 and I've spent the last fortnight trying to get things to work. The export and import into MySQL5 have all gone fine but on trying to login to the site the password would not autthenticate. Changing the passwd column from 16 to 41 does not work and the site only works if one requests a new password and the login then works fine - with the 41 character passwd column that is. Now this wouldn't pose a problem but there are now 20,000+ users and getting them all to request a new password would be tricky to say the least. I've tried everything - well everything apart from the correct thing - and I'm running out of patience. 1&1 are not replying to my mails and it's all going a bit wonky, I'm working evenings on this after a full day at work and this has now lasted a fortnight and I would love to see my daughter again. Any suggestions would be really welcome and I must apologise if I've posted this in the wrong forum but I'm steadily going a bit insane :-) If I could get them to set old_password to true on the server I think this would work but I get the feeling they can't do this on a none server hosted version. Please help.....
