  1. In Topic: is a connection file secure? [PHP] [MYSQL]

    Posted 19 Sep 2014

    I was just wondering if storing the connection code for a MySQL database in a separate file ('conn.php' for example) is secure?

    it depends on the environment. some points you should consider:
    • no config file should reside in a publicly available (i.e. reachable via HTTP) folder. if you force the webserver to ignore the PHP parser, the credentials are compromised.
    • config files (credential in general) must not be in version control. (see above)
    • credentials must not be defined as variables.
    • it is preferable if credentials are not globally/publicly accessible (i.e. no global constants, rather use getter methods/functions).

    The code I posted under ASP

    that’s ASP code, not HTML code (though it contains some plaintext HTML code, but not the one we’re interested here). and the browser doesn’t receive ASP code either.

    remember, when dealing with client-side issues, we need to look at the code as received in the browser (get it via 'view source code' option).
  3. In Topic: Aligning controls properly with css

    Posted 19 Sep 2014

    what does the HTML look like?
  4. In Topic: Calling the system to open a file in PHP

    Posted 19 Sep 2014

    do you want to open the file on the server’s OS?

    alternatively, if you want the client to use an appropriate programme, send the appropriate Content-Type header.
  5. In Topic: Dynamic Notification

    Posted 18 Sep 2014

    how to handle incoming requests is the responsibility of the webserver used, so there is no general answer.

    Just wanted to stop by and say thanks for that bit about "clear:both" when using floats in HTML/CSS. That solved a long-standing issue I have been having in Firefox! ^^

    Thanks yeah, the session class I have is pretty much like that, but also acts as a singleton and fake session handler! Both get the exact same effect :D
