Hashing password in PHP and mySQL

Hello. I am redesigning the User table with a more secure login and need some input on the best (most secure) way to do it.

Is there any topical discussion or current consensus on whether to use MD5, SHA1, CRYPT etc as the most broadly accepted secure hashing algo?

Is the general practice to hash the password in Java or PHP, then upload and use PHP to insert into mySQL CHAR(40) password field?
