in reply to [SOLVED]- FOUND OTHER DOCUMENTATION Encrypting a password to MD5

Digest::MD5 (A core module). The security of the MD5 hash function is severely compromised.

Prefer alternatives such as Digest::Bcrypt, or Digest::SHA (using SHA-2). Authen::Passphrase is a nice tool that provides easy access to various safe alternatives (as well as some less secure alternatives).

Anyway, you've marked this [SOLVED], but might want to re-think it.
