php mysql encrypt

I have been having a problem with my sql in my entry form.  I can't get the encryption sha1 to work. I hope it will be obvious to someone else what I'm doing wrong here:

1)   I have been able to successfully run this sql in the SSH window by manually entering it:

INSERT INTO tblProfiles VALUES ('jessname22','jess22',0,1, sha1('jess22'));

2)   But I can't get it to work from my website using php:

$sqll = "INSERT INTO tblProfiles VALUES ('$custID','$password',0,1,sha1('$pswd'));";

3)  To see what the rendered sql looks, like I added this code:

echo ("sqll:  " . $sqll);

This is what it displayed:

sqll:INSERT INTO tblProfiles VALUES ('bartname22','bart22',0,1,sha1('bart22'));

If you see my problem, I'd appreciate a heads-up.

Thanks,

Lynn

Usually you don't need the ending semicolon when you define an SQL inside a scripting language.  Try the following:

$sqll = "INSERT INTO tblProfiles VALUES ('$custID','$password',0,1,sha1('$pswd'))";

Are you adding error reporting to your result statement so you can see what the error is?
$result = mysql_query($sqll) or die('Query failed: ' . mysql_error());

Why not just assign a variable to the value sha1('$pswd') and use that in the query;
$hash1 = sha1('$pswd');
$sqll = "INSERT INTO tblProfiles VALUES ('$custID','$password',0,1,'$hash1')";
