Calculates the MD5 hash of the specified string and returns its hexadecimal representation.

[[|link=|]] Warning: It is strongly recommended to use passwordHash to hash passwords, md5 is easily decodeable.
[[{{{image}}}|link=|]] Note: It returns an uppercase string, so make sure you string.upper() anything else you are checking against that has been MD5'd elsewhere.


string md5 ( string str )

Required Arguments

  • str: the string to hash.


Returns the MD5 hash of the input string if successful, false otherwise.


This function, along with other hashing algorithms, can be used for a plausible script self protection strategy. If done right this strategy does present the fact that the script wants to express ownership to a legal entity. This can be used as argument in a court of law or for DRM purposes. You can find the general idea here.


function md5it (player,command, theString) -- open function
  if theString then -- check if the string is exist
    md5string = md5(theString) -- get the md5 string
    outputChatBox(theString.. " -> " .. md5string , player, 255, 0, 0, false) -- output it
addCommandHandler ("md5it", md5it) -- create command
