How can I change ISPConfig to save passwords in plain text in the mysql db
Thats not supported and it is highly recommendet to not do this. Plain text passwords in the mysql DB are a securoity nightmare. If you really want to do this, you will have to change the ispconfig sources, especially the form library.
Only reason I ask is I am trying to migrate from ISPConfig2 to 3 and the first issue was all the passwords, I now see that with ISPC3 it no longer stored the passwords in the shadow file but in the db. but makeing them clear test, future upgrade will not be a big problem.
But I do get your point about security.
There is no problem with the passwords when you migrate from ispconfig 2 to 3 that I'am aware of as they are encrypted with crypt in both versions. So you can copy them from the shadow file of the ispconfig 2 install into the password field of the ispconfig 3 database table.
Awesome thanks, that worked, so I just need some clever scripting to do the password migration
