Hi,
I'm stuck with a verstion of PHP that doesn't support SHA1(). And I mistakenly developed a whole site with it. I found code for a SHA1 function but in Javascript at:
http://pajhome.org.uk/crypt/md5/sha1src.html
But has anyone seen code that I could use? Please help.

For a pure PHP-implementation (no extension needed) see (LGPL):

I found the class, so I guess my equivalent function would be:

function sha1($inputString) {

  $sha = new SHA;
  $hasharray = $sha->hash_string($inputString);
  return ($sha->hash_to_string( $hasharray ));

}

yes

make an if condition around your, if the function already exists, you can use the one defined by php

if (!function_exits('sha1')) {

function sha1($inputString) {

  $sha = new SHA;
  $hasharray = $sha->hash_string($inputString);
  return ($sha->hash_to_string( $hasharray ));

}

}
