The following test demostrates the problem with crypt() function.

<?php

$orgstr="abc123";
$salt=time();
$cryptstr=crypt($orgstr,$salt);

echo "orgstr=$orgstr, salt=$salt, cryptstr=$cryptstr<p>";

?>

This will return the same $cryptstr whatever the salt is.

Please read http://www.php.net/manual/function.crypt.php again.
The salt string can be only 2-characters.
