How to securely connect to oracle database?


Recommended Posts

Hi Friends,

I have developed an API for a client and Could you please help me secure database connection as i don't want to hard code any credentials in the PHP script.

Thanks in advance.

Place your credentials in a file outside of DocRoot and read that file from the PHP connection script. Make sure you set permissions so only the user running httpd (usually 'apache' on Linux) can access that file.
