PHP Random Password Generator

How to create a random password generator with PHP

I found this cool snippet and I wanted to share it with you.

The code basically uses predefined characters to create a string.

You can set the length and the strength.

Now you just need to call the function wherever you want.

<?php function generatePassword($length=9, $strength=0) { $vowels = 'aeuy'; $consonants = 'bdghjmnpqrstvz'; if ($strength & 1) { $consonants .= 'BDGHJLMNPQRSTVWXZ'; } if ($strength & 2) { $vowels .= "AEUY"; } if ($strength & 4) { $consonants .= '23456789'; } if ($strength & 8) { $consonants .= '@#$%'; } $password = ''; $alt = time() % 2; for ($i = 0; $i < $length; $i++) { if ($alt == 1) { $password .= $consonants[(rand() % strlen($consonants))]; $alt = 0; } else { $password .= $vowels[(rand() % strlen($vowels))]; $alt = 1; } } return $password; } ?>
