To calculate a hash using SHA256 format for a string in PHP, you need to use the hash function:

$myString = 'test';
$result = hash('sha256', $myString);


$myString - is the string to be encoded.

The first parameter passed to the hash function is the hashing algorithm, it can be different, for example "md5", "sha1", "haval160,4", etc.
