Export users and passwords

Recommended Posts

You cannot export passwords.  Even the IPB software itself does not know what the password stored in the database is.... the password itself is hashed hashed and salted in a unique way per community that is stored in the DB.  That value is them compared to what is entered by the user when the same salt/hash is done again.   So just taking an encrypted password would not work as you would also have to understand how the password was hashed and salted uniquely to simply compare a password.  

To be honest, you're better off just having the password set a new password via email verification on first login.
