I'm using a PHP application for my database so obviously I need to pass a login / password to make a database connection. And I'm using a minimum-permission login for the application so PHP needs to know those credentials somewhere. Is that the best way to secure my password? I'm just worried that writing it in PHP code isn't the smartest idea.
