Add encrypted passwords to database

When creating a user sign up form how do I send the password value to the databse (mySQL) encrypted?

Is this set up in the database structure or on the php page sending the info from the form?

A very basic function looks like this one:

?>
<?php
$salt = "SOMEWORD";
$password_hash = md5($salt . md5($_POST['password'] . $salt));
?>

Cheers

example of mysql encryption:
INSERT into user (first_name, address) VALUES (AES_ENCRYPT('Obama', 'usa2010'),AES_ENCRYPT('Obama', 'usa2010'))

Open in new window



example of php encryption:
<?php
$pwd= "123456";
echo md5($pwd);
?>

Open in new window
