Please correct me if i am wrong:
If i want a game to be able to influence certain variables in a SQL database, the database passwort has to be saved either on the webpage or in the game code. (like in the tutorial ,where the password would be saved in login.php)
But could'nt anyone so inclined just read the password out and get access to the SQL database ?
Is there a way to influence SQL database values without entering the password ?
Or can the password made invisible somehow ?
Or doens't it matter as long as the user hasnt access to the webpage password ?
As you see i am quite new to this topic.
Thank you for an answer.
