Mysql docs say: ENCRYPT(str[,salt]) Encrypt str using the Unix crypt() system call. The salt argument should be a string with two characters. (As of MySQL Version 3.22.16, salt may be longer than two characters.): mysql> select ENCRYPT("hello"); -> 'VxuFAJXVARROc' If crypt() is not available on your system, ENCRYPT() always returns NULL. ENCRYPT() ignores all but the rst 8 characters of str, at least on some systems. This will be determined by the behavior of the underlying crypt() system call. ##### It may be that you don't have crypt on your system; also, you might want single quotes around the ENCRYPT and double quotes to delimit the string and salt, thus: VALUES ( 'henri', 'ENCRYPT("diesel","henri")' )"; -- David Robley Techno-JoaT, Web Maintainer, Mail List Admin, etc CENTRE FOR INJURY STUDIES Flinders University, SOUTH AUSTRALIA " ," said Tom blankly. -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, e-mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED] For additional commands, e-mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED] To contact the list administrators, e-mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED]
