Welcome here.


There are two possibility's : use the MySQL md5() function or the php md5() function.

MySQL md5() will look like


$sql = "insert into clients (usern, userpwd, regdate) values ('" . $uname . "','md5(" . $upwd . ")', '". $datetime . "')";

MySQL md5() will look like


$upwd = md5($upwd);
$sql = "insert into clients (usern, userpwd, regdate) values ('" . $uname . "','" . $upwd . "', '". $datetime . "')"

If you can, then use sha1() instead of md5()
