Hi all

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.
