Using Crypt to Encrypt Password in PHP

Sometimes we need to encrypt a password hash in php before inserting it into the database. The code below will reveal this information.

hash

<?php $passwordtohash = 'mypassword'; $hash = crypt($passwordtohash); echo $hash; echo $passwordtohas; ?>

Explaining the Crypt Code and Process *

The php variable of $pass is holding within it “hash”. We then take the variable $passwordtohash and put the crypt function on it and store it in another variable called $hash.

We then echo out both the $hash and the $passwordtohash to see what they look like.

$encrypted=sha1(md5($passwordtohash));
