Default ISPconfig3 creating user with old mysql password hashes?


I'm currently running ISPconfig
I noticed in the 'users' table of mysql on the database servers, that database users get created with the old shorter mysql password hashes.
Looking at earlier accounts created with ISPconfig, they all have the new longer mysql password hashes.

Was this a deliberate change in ISPconfig?
Can I change this behaviour?

The reason I noticed this was because newer mysql clients (5.5+) start to refuse to authenticated using the old password hashes.

Thanks in advance for any feedback.

ISPConfig creates passwords with the default mysql password() command. If the short or long hashes are used is configured in mysql my.cnf, thats not a setting in ispconfig.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.

Thanks, you are right for some reason I had "old_passwords=1" in my.cnf.
