can anybody share, the best encryption and decryption technique in PHP.
here i just found 3 ways. are that any better technique?

<?php
//1
$password = 'mothafucka';
$sSalt = '8*S&AsEc4qUs';
$sHash = hash( 'whirlpool', $password . $sSalt );
echo $sHash."<br><br>";

//2
$password = "palancau87";
$password = sha1($password);
$password = md5($password);
echo $password."<br><br>";

//3
function getSalt( $iLength = 10 )
{
	$sPossible = '0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ!@#$%^&*()-+=[]{}|';
	$iPossibleCount = strlen( $sPossible );
 
	$sSalt = '';
	for( $i=0; $i<$iLength; $i++ )
	{
		$sSalt .= $sPossible[mt_rand(0, $iPossibleCount)];
	}
 
	return $sSalt;
}
 
$sSalt = getSalt();
$sHash = hash('whirlpool', $password . $sSalt );
echo $sHash."<br><br>";
?>

Output:

Do you want a hash (as shown), or do you want to be able to decrypt it? Also have a look at this thread.

Hashing is not the same thing as encryption. Your examples are all hashing.

If you need to be able to encrypt and decrypt the data than check out the php documentation for the mcrypt library.

3 above examples are from that link actually.
I just want to know the technique to decrypt it, so we as an admin, can echo it to view the encrypted word.

or, this encrypt technique cannot be decrypt?

See mschroeder's link, if you want en-/decryption, instead of hashes. A hash is not meant to be decrypted.

ok got it
