I was thinking it is possible to generate hash from given password that is exactly the same as the hash written to database.
Only if you use the same salt, but you don't have the salt, so therein lies the problem 😄
After several years of using NodeBB my community has grown to the point where we need to migrate to a proprietary system (also due to company policy).
As part of the migration process i need to bring users (6000+) and their passwords into the new database.
I understand that passwords are stored as hashes in the nodebb mongodb database; is there a way of extracting them to the new database so that all my users don’t have to reset their passwords?
I’ve no interest in finding out my users passwords per se, i just want to make the transition as seamless as possible for them.
