I am creating a site that will have a login system and I would like to hash a users password before storing it in the database. My question is in case a user makes a simple password that could be figured out using brute force methods would it help to hash the password using md5 and sha1 like so:
PHP Code:
md5(sha1($Password)); 
or would a salt that contains letters and numbers do the trick with just md5 like so:
PHP Code:
$Salt "64Mustang";
md5($Password $Salt);; 
Thanks in advance,
Matt
