how would you retrieve a password from the database to use it to login if you put it in as like:

$hash = md5($salt1.$password.$salt2);

then like insert it in, i need to like have it so if the $_POST['password'] == $hashedPassword, but im not sure how to like do that.

You have to compare the hashes, not the password text itself.


if(md5($salt1.$_POST['password'].$salt2) == $pass_from_database)
#you're good
