( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
There have already been some great responses to this question, but taking it froma different angle, One thing I try to do is match the database user to the trust given to the outside web user. 95% of the people that access a dtabase in my apps are doing lookups. so I create the Database user that can only do lookups. that way if the password is given to the whole world they really can't do more than they can from the website.

If I need acces to things like deltes etc. I will require a user id an password to be input from the site (https page) then the password is not needed to be stored in the script.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
