Securing a MySQL database is something that has been nagging at me for a while. I count myself as comfortable PHP coder: ie I know the basics, can write useful scripts and enjoy pushing myself with trying to do more complex things.

However, I'm very much aware that I don't know a whole lot about security issues. I could quite inadvertently have security holes in my code and not realise it.

Soooo ... I was wondering whether anybody has any good links to articles regarding common PHP/MySQL security issues and ways to solve them. It doesn't have to be totally comprehensive, but seeing as I'm hoping to be working on more database driven websites, I really think that I should be trying my best to make things as secure as possible in my coding.

Ta very much for your help,
Morty

Just on a side note, can anybody recommend me any good books to read on this topic?

Thanks,
