quick question about security

Recommended Posts

I'm working with freelancers here.

One is requesting my FTP login and pass, as well as my database info(password and stuff).
Does he really need this info to code some PHP for me?
Should I ever give out that info?

thanks

OK, I guess that was a stupid question.
At least tell me when I ask a stupid question. ;)

They could manipulate the site I suppose with that info, so bad idea any way you look at it.

he could need to acess the FTP site to upload files and he might need the database info for PHP code

You can always change the passwords after the project is done.. I always recommend that for my clients
