Customer Password 'salt'

Customer Password 'salt'

hi all...

I'm in the process of importing 17k customers from another database that has plain text passwords.

I have worked out (with the help of various scripts) how to MD5 the password but without knowing how the 'salt' is created, i'm stuck.

I know it's a two character string, but don't know if this is manually specified somewhere or is generated based on something else.

I read somewhere that it was based on the last two characters of the plain text password, but this didn't work for me.


I'm using version CE


Many Thanks
