That's not easy and depends on what you can do with mysql. 

step 1 export the data from mysql including hashed passwords

You should get most of what you want like this:


    search *

but the hashed passwords may be an issue...

step 2, reformat it to match nwauth.txt format   username:hashedpassword: other data...

step 3, test it :-)

I have been using MySql ro authenticate users using Surgemail.  It has worked flawlessly. I provision MySql with billing system Platypus by doing a remote server update from Platypus' MsSql database.   I have decided to eliminate MySql entirely and update Surgemail with the Surgemail API through Platypus.  Again I want to eliminate MySql.  How can I update NWAuth with all of my users from MySql to do the changeover without having to manually update each user in Platypus?

I'd really appreciate it if you could take a moment to like us on FaceBook, thanks heaps! ChrisP.
