Correct, not PHP. most DB engines have built in encryption funtions for use in their INSERT (IE "store the password in the DB so that it is encrypted") and SELECT (for verifying it with the same funtion you used in INSERT)

yes "Not PHP":

 a) crypt() has nothing to do with a query
 b) every language has a crypt function

The question has more to do with a general idea of how to accomplish a task, the most suitable answer to is to be had in their DB documentation, since data should be independant of the language handling it (whether it a real language like C or Perl or a wanna be duct taped hack like PHP - no need for flames, I won't listen or care ;p)
