I'd use php:
$uuk = md5($uid . $pwd . rand());
$query = "INSERT INTO KullaniciBilgileri (_key, uid, pwd, uuk) VALUES ('$key', '$uid', '$pwd', '$uuk')";

Here is how I would do it...

FIrst, modify the existing code so that any new registrations automatically build the "uuk" value and store it in the database.  That will keep you from having a "regression" later.

Next, write a short and simple PHP script to do the following...

1. SELECT _key, uid, pwd FROM your database table WHERE uuk = '' /* This is an empty string */
2. Iterate over the results set.   With each row:
3. $uuk = md5($uid . $pwd . rand());
4. UPDATE your database table SET uuk = '$uuk' WHERE _key = $_key LIMIT 1

This will take on a second or two to run, and you'll only need to run it once.  Then you can use the "uuk" values as described in the article.

Why not use UUID() for your unique key?
