I need to store username and password for mysql in a file to be used by PHP.
I am concerned with PHP's security.  Can anyone use showsource() to read php
source even if they are on a different server or they are spoofing my ip
address (hacking)?
 If I put a file with the secure data in a directory outside the root
directory and include it in a PHP script, could someone use echo or
showsource() to view the file content making the data insecure?
