I have a 2.5 year old Magento CE 1.6 site that I would like to upgrade to CE 1.9.
Due to changes within a number of areas - theme, extensions I am using, attribute sets etc. - I am in the process of starting from scratch on the Magento CE 1.9 site.
The only issue I have is that I want the customer records to come across to the new site without resetting their passwords.
From what I can see the encryption method of the customer passwords has changed from 1.6 to 1.9, so even with the same encryption key, I am not sure if this would work.
Is this, in any way, possible?
