UPGRADE_SYMPA_PASSWORD(1)	 sympa 6.2.60	     UPGRADE_SYMPA_PASSWORD(1)

NAME
       upgrade_sympa_password, upgrade_sympa_password.pl - Upgrading password
       in database

SYNOPSIS
	 upgrade_sympa_password.pl [--dry_run|-n] [--debug|d] [--verbose|v] [--config file ] [--cache file] [--nosavecache] [--noupdateuser] [--limit|l	number_of_users]

OPTIONS
       --dry_run|-n
	   Shows what will be done but won't really perform the	upgrade
	   process.

       --debug|-d
	   Print additional debugging information during the upgrade process.

       --verbose|-v
	   Print verbose logging messages during the upgrade process.

       --config	FILENAME
	   Specify the pathname	of the file to use as the Sympa	configuration
	   file.  Otherwise the	system default Sympa configuration file	is
	   used.

       --cache FILENAME
	   Specify the pathname	of a file to store precalculated hashes	for
	   reuse on subsequent runs of the script.

	   The file is created if it does not already exist.

	   This	option is useful for large sites using intentionally expensive
	   password hashes such	as bcrypt. In that case	this script can	be run
	   in advance to precalculate hashes and reduce	the time required
	   during the final upgrade process.

	   WARNING: since it contains sensitive	password data, this file
	   should be protected as carefully as any other password file,	or a
	   database dump of the	Sympa user_table.

       --nosavecache
	   Disables updates of the cache. The cache is still consulted if
	   specified with "--cache".

       --noupdateuser
	   Disables updates of the user_table. Mostly useful when
	   precalculating user hashes in advance.

DESCRIPTION
       Versions	later than 5.4 use one-way hashes instead of symmetric
       encryption to store passwords. This script upgrades any symmetric
       encrypted passwords it finds to one-way hashes.

       Versions	later than 6.2.26 support bcrypt.

       This upgrade requires to	rewriting user password	entries	in the
       database.  This upgrade IS NOT REVERSIBLE.

HISTORY
       As of Sympa 3.1b.7, passwords may be stored into	user table with
       encrypted form by reversible RC4.

       Sympa 5.4 or later uses MD5 one-way hash	function to encode user
       passwords.

       Sympa 6.2.26 or later has optional support for bcrypt.
