Password hashing algo wanted

I need a good password hashing algo.

1st solution: for(i=0; $i<pow(2,20); $i++) { $password = hash('sha256', $password . $salt); }

2nd solution: echo password_hash('password', PASSWORD_DEFAULT);

Is there a 3rd solution? What is that?

Is scrypt the new panacea? What is scrypt?

Ask clarification

The latest PHP releases provide PBKDF2 implementations, but if you need a general solution that works in any PHP version, this class provides a pure PHP implementation of either PBKDF2 and Ceasar. These algorithms also implement key derivation functions.

I would check out this class, seems to cover most of the basics.

I have not dealt with scrypt before, apparently it is KDF (key derivation function) to derive secret keys from secret values.

    I must point out that my recommendation was made when the question was about wanting a password hashing class. The question now appears to have been changed to wanting a specific class for scrypt.
