We need to move a client over from a .Net solution where all MD5 passwords are stored in an MS SQL db to a Magento MySQL database. After much Googling, it seems we cannot decrypt the passwords without a lot of effort.

What we would then like to know is, can one copy the MD5 passwords as is from the MS SQL db to a MySQL db and expect it to work?

We have asked for sample data of customers to test this but not sure when we will be getting it.


If the hashing algorithm and salt match, then a direct copy SHOULD work.
