I am trying to encrypt some data using MD5, and match what PHP gives us with (supposedly) the same algorithm.
In Filemaker, I am using
HexEncode (CryptDigest ( TextField ; "MD5" ))
In PHP 5.5.9, the programmer I am working with is using the MD5 function.
The former gives a hexadecimal coding, and the latter gives . . . I'm not sure what it's called, but it's all letters of the alphabet, and numbers. So clearly, I am not doing the right thing. But I can't tell from the documentation what the right thing is, exactly.
Thanks for any advise.
