Now, if you make a login system.. You want encryption for the users password, yes we all know. But thing is, if you encrypt it, such as with the md5() function algorithm, wouldn't that make it incorrect, if a user tries to login, and is trying to access his password which has now been encrypted. My problem is this, I try to encrypt passwords when registering, in the sql, and well, I go to login, and it gives me an error which I set, invalid password, please try again, well I know you cannot DECRYPT the password, so basically your account is stuck. :[
Would I just go by doing a base64 encryption? and then decrypt it?? Though that's a security risk it sounds, bleh.. Help with this please.
