I currently have hashed passwords in my database. I want to set them for clear. I do not care about any kind of security. I just want plain, simple passwords. I don't even care if I have to delete all my users and start over fresh. I desperately have been searching as to why it is not explained further than changing passwordformat equal to clear to elimante hashing. I thought adding security would be the difficult part, not eliminating it.
<membership> <providers> <add connectionStringName="newdbConnectionString" enablePasswordRetrieval="false" enablePasswordReset="true" requiresQuestionAndAnswer="true" applicationName="SecurityTutorials" requiresUniqueEmail="true" passwordFormat="Clear" maxInvalidPasswordAttempts="5" minRequiredPasswordLength="7" minRequiredNonalphanumericCharacters="1" passwordAttemptWindow="10" passwordStrengthRegularExpression="" name="SecurityTutorialsSqlMembershipProvider" type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider"/> </providers> </membership>
Is there more to it? This is driving me crazy so any help will be very appreciated. I am adding users through the Web Site Administration Tool. In the database, the passwords are obviously entered as encrypted/hased with a passwordformat=1.
