I am currently writing a messenger that will connect to a database and check login credentials against theirs as they signed up with. everything works great as long as i log into phpmysql and copy the md5 hash password and enter it in to login to the messenger. So my question is can some one help me to make it so say the users password is "password" they can type it in but either it encrypts it correctly or does some kind of comparison to make sure that they typed the correct password.. This way the users never see the md5 or have to memorize it or anything like such.
Thanks in advance.
