I have a legacy database with users (data generated by PHP, yii2 framework) and tried to use it in Go for authentication. Stored passwords have prefix $2a$ and also if I generate a new password in Go (bcrypt.GenerateFromPassword) it has the same prefix. However, if I try bcrypt.CompareHashAndPassword I always get password mismatch. Did someone have the same problem?
Resolved. I actually had a bug when migrating data from the legacy MySQL database to Mongo. I used collection model (built inhouse) which had password hash in beforeSave event. This used to hash already hased password, so it broke it.
Yes, they are compatible
By the way, actually both have $2y$ prefix.
