I would encode the value in PHP and pass the hash to MySQL rather than
passing the password in open text as part of the query and letting
MySQL calculate the hash. That way the sensitive data has already been
hashed and you don't have to worry about whether the communication
between PHP and MySQL travels over an unencrypted network connection
-- now or in the future.
