Let me explain this a bit better, or try to. ;) Let's say I have some code on MY SERVER.
I will call it "MYSERVER" and an outside server outside my local area "OUTSIDESERVER". Now I have PHP on "MYSERVER" to connect to a database on an "OUTSIDESERVER" and once establish do a few updates/deletes etc. Now the database names, passwords etc will be stored on "MYSERVER" which uses input themself to save. Now is this method security safe and possible or are most servers setup to a DB connection can only be made by "localhost"?

Hi, Is it "security safe and possible" to use my server to query another server, outside the local zone, and make updates to another server using a PHP page from my server? I'm just wondering. So in other words I'd have a DB setup to hold users domains, db names, db usernames, db passwords etc on mine and run PHP code query their own on their server. I wanna do this to run a program I am working on and wanna keep the code on my server rather than handing it out to people to freely use. Again the question is, is it security safe and possible. :) J Find local movie times and trailers on Yahoo!
