How to make password database portable
A few months back I tried to move my dbman database to a different server, noticing though that this was impossible because usersī passwords didnīt work on the new server any more.

After posting here I found out that this is apparently due to the fact that the Perl crypt function behaves slightly different on different systems.

Is it possible though to alter the code in the dbman scripts before even installing dbman so that it can later be moved to any other server while preserving password portability ?
