To minimise any potential damage, ask them to give you a (mysql) user which only has select privileges on just the tables you need. That way even if others do get your user/pass they can only look but not touch. To tighten things further you can ask them to allow access only from _your_ host. -- Jason Wong -> Gremlins Associates -> www.gremlins.biz Open Source Software Systems Integrators * Web Design & Hosting * Internet & Intranet Applications Development * /* When some people decide it's time for everyone to make big changes, it means that they want you to change first. */ -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
