Eliminate Plain Text Passwords with MySQL

I’ve found this thread (http://www.igniterealtime.org/community/message/127064) from 2006 and have searched every link in the Admin Console of Openfire 3.4.1 for Linux for an “encrypt passwords” checkbox. I see the “encryptedPassword” field in my MySQL database but how do I get them in there? Does the Enterprise version of Openfire have plaintext passwords?

Hi Jake,

if a users changes or updates the password it should be stored encrypted. There is no script or migration tool available which does this automatically.
