registration script help needed

Recommended Posts

Hello, im new to this forums, im sorry if this is wrong section. [img src=\"style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/smile.gif\" style=\"vertical-align:middle\" emoid=\":smile:\" border=\"0\" alt=\"smile.gif\" /]

I want to make a script in php that what the user writes for the password gets converted to md5 value and inserted into database table = varbinary.

Example:

Username: user1

Password userpw

userpw = gets converted to md5 (varbinary)

and get inserted into the mssql database.

[b]i already tryed this: [/b]

$password = stripslashes($_POST['pw']);
$enc = md5($password);
$finalpw = "enc";

and didnt worked, maybe was me that did it wrong, and code is wrong. im still a noobie :)

thank you, i hope you understand what im trying to do.

i am not sure why you would do a strip slashes. There shouldnt be any quotes in the password.


This is how i would do it:

[code]$password = mysql_escape_string(htmlentities($_POST['pw']));
$finalpw = md5($password);
[/code]
Enjoy!
