mySql PASSWORD function
If I send a users password to a database table using:
when they first register. If I want to check that that user and their password is valid at another login time will I just be able to compare the password they enter the next time they log on with the one in the database to authenticate them. If not how do I do the following:
I want to store user's passwords encrypted in a database but I need to compare these encrypted passwords with user when they login at another time.
Sorry if this sounds confusing.:devil:
When they log in next... encrypt the password they entered. Compare this encrypted password to the already encrypted password in your database.
there are other functions other than password() that you could use
like encode() and encrypt()
i'd use PHP's or MySQL's md5().
If I read the question correctly, you just need to do this:
$sql = "SELECT * FROM db.users WHERE password = PASSWORD('$pwd');"
$result = mysql_query($sql);
