comment Securing a script to prevent database from being exposed
@Rook The password is stored in the config file and only the owner can read the file (the suphp account). Of course you can use the mysql_connect function to connect to the database and do what you want. Connecting over SSL? The script is accessing a local database, what has SSL to do with it? I really don't think you understand my question, but thanks fwiw.

comment Securing a script to prevent database from being exposed
Thanks, but we didn't make the choice of ioncube encoding the script. Our business purchased the script and my responsibility is to do my best to secure it. What do you mean by "It is never acceptable to allow an attacker to connect to your database."? - Why do you think I believe otherwise? Thanks.
