Subject [greenstone-devel] Password encryption
Hi list,

As I read in another post, a way to load users in a bulk is to export
users.db, edit the resulting txt file adding there all users and then
recreate the users.db with txt2db command.

What I realized is that password is not plain text but encrypted one. Which
encryption method is used?. It is a hash or something like that?. The case
is that I canâ–ˇt create users in this way because of the password!.

TIA.

Diego Spano
