What is the longest password a forum will handle?

Is there limits on some forums?

I have been unable to find a password length limit on facebook so far Ive had a 10 000 upper and lower case random letters. I can enter it in about 5 min.

The limit depends on the settings, database and encryption.

The max amount of characters a MySQL database field can contain is at 2^31-1

Typically, passwords are encrypted when stored. Depending on the algorithm used, you end up with a string of characters, with a fixed length.

For example: The MD5 hashing algorithm, always produces a string of 32 characters, no matter how many you input.
