    Securing PHP

    Just wanted to point out a good article about securing PHP.

    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.

    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.
    Enjoy.
