    we have an existing sitefinity 5 database that holds around 200+ users with PW encrypted.  we developed a new site layout with diff. pages/images/module etc. in a fresh backup copy of the live db. 

    Now we want to use that db copy as our live db but have since added more users in the live db.  I can't just add them manually since the passwords are encrypted.   How can I import/write code that adds any new users to the backup db copy without restoring the whole DB.  Or can I just copy some tables.

    thanks

    Doug

    Hi Doug,

    The best approach in your particular case is to implement a custom membership provider. I am suggesting this solution mainly because all the passwords for your users are hashed. Please check the following documentation article where you can find detailed information how to implement a custom membership provider.

    Create a custom membership provider

    thanks for the response, but I don't want users to have to selected which provider?   Doesn't Telerik have a routine to migrate the users content to another db?

    Hi Doug,

    There is no option available when all the passwords are hashed. This is the reason why I have suggested to implement a membership provider.
