Securing PHP: Step-by-step
by Artur Maj
last updated June 23, 2003
In my previous article ("Securing Apache: Step-by-Step") I described the method of securing the Apache web server against unauthorized access from the Internet. Thanks to the described method it was possible to achieve a high level of security, but only when static HTML pages were served. But how can one improve security when interaction with the user is necessary and the users' data must be saved into a local database?
This article shows the basic steps in securing PHP, one of the most popular scripting languages used to create dynamic web pages. In order to avoid repeating information covered in the previous article, only the main differences related to the process of securing Apache will be described.
Also... their Securing Apache Step-by-Step is pretty good too.
is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

Secure MYSQL Database Design
Thanks for posting the link to the PHP tutorial. It helped make my server more secure. Likewise, I've included a link on how to design a secure MYSQL database. It's a decent tutorial and it fits well with the PHP and Apache tutorials already posted.
