After alot of help from those on this an other forums, i have been able to create a login and registration scripts, that work well.
However i have one question and one problem to resolve.
Question is: all the login and registration scripts i have seen all have MD5 encryption for the password transmission for registering or login. I have heard that MD5 is not as secure as it once was, would say SHA1 or 2 be more appropriate, or am I being over cautious with what is only a personal project?
Problem to solve is: Registering works well, password is encrypted and appears in the database table in its encrypted form. But when I use the login in keeps re-directing me to my login failure screen, even though the login is correct.
The login code is set to pass the password for validation in the encrypted form, it seems as the password is being rejected as it is not matching the encrypted one in the table?
any help, as always would be gratefully recieved.
Thanks in advance
