    Sorry, md5 and sha1 hashing algorithms do not use salts.

    There are some algorithms which use multiple algorithms.
    Some may include md5 and/or sha1 and another algorithm which
    does include a salt field. However, trying to work with
    combinations of multiple algorithms is beyond what
    mod_auth_mysql isdesignd to do.
