I have mediawiki installed in my local machine. I had to use a form outside wiki which asks the user to upload files with the wiki username and password. In order to achieve this I went through the database and found in the user table a user's password: :B:4700e0cf:6f650d779329f7d4de5dffe728bf30d8 which was in the user_password column which is a tinyblob(opened the bin file got from db and got the above password). So my question is:
How do I check this with the password entered by the user in the external form?
In what form(encryption) this password is saved in the database?
