I use the classic following rows to connect to a mysql database. I always put $passsword in clear in the php connection file and I wonder whether there is a way to have it in md5 so that someone reading the file could not use it to connect to the db. I googled a bit but find only threads explaining how to have password saved in md5 inside a mysql table which is not I would like to do
No. Think about it - if your script is able to connect using this MD5 hash of the password - anyone who could read that script could similarly just connect using the MD5. Store your password in an included file outside of the webroot.
