asp.net membership question - Hashed passwords cannot be decoded.
Posted on 2011-02-11
I'm trying to retrieve user passwords for an admin page. Apparently I've been using hashed passwords. I'm developing a low security, friendly site, so I don't give a rip about how secure it is. I read that I need to change my password format. I tried this by adding passwordFormat="true" in my web.config, but I still get the 'Hashed passwords cannot be decoded.' error on this line:
Line 180: MembershipUtil.Password = Membership.Provider.GetPassword(MembershipUtil.Username, String.Empty);
Please advise. Thanks -
