Ok I am adding this here from this post https://forum.directadmin.com/threads/crypt_method.59728/#post-305820

Is there any reason the default crypt_method cannot be equal to 6 as a standard?

My Post is in reference to this feature. https://www.directadmin.com/features.php?id=1412

I noticed the Default for User account hashes are still MD5. Unless you set crypt_method=6 in directadmin.conf. Is there a reason we should still be using this older method? Is there some reason not to set the default to SHA-512?

I noticed the admin account and root is SHA-512 but not my users. Looking at the /etc/shadow file is see $1 not $6.
