    Passwords on espocrm are encrypted with a key that stored in config.php, named passwordSalt

    Just copy the salt value from the old crm to the new one and the passwords will work again, but note that the previous users on the new crm will need to reset their passwords.

    So you will choose between keeping passwords for old users or for now.

    Here is how you can reset password from the console: php command.php set-password [username]

          Do do a backup though, your version is quite old and you going to be in a world of hurt if you rush the upgrade.
