How to secure database passwords in PHP

0 votes
When a PHP application makes a database connection it of course generally needs to pass a login and password. If I'm using a single, minimum-permission login for my application, then the PHP needs to know that login and password somewhere. What is the best way to secure that password?

Hello @kartik,

If you're hosting on someone else's server and don't have access outside your webroot, you can always put your password and/or database connection in a file and then lock the file using a .htaccess:

<files mypasswdfile>
order allow,deny
deny from all
</files>

Hope it helps!!

Thank You!!
