As long as you start all php files in your application by including the
"general.inc" file, you will never lose these variables.

The file "general.inc" may look like this:

  $host = "";
  $username = "john";
  $password = "secret";

Just a word of caution....
Make sure that the file "general.inc" is NOT readable by the web server.
Otherwise, it would be very easy to do a http://your.host/general.inc to
reveal your database password.
