Something like 


$db_mycnf = parse_ini_file($_SERVER['HOME']."/replica.my.cnf");

$db_username = $db_mycnf['user'];

$db_password = $db_mycnf['password'];



should do nicely.  It’ll store the username and password to the variables $db_username and $db_password.

Subject: [Labs-l] Connecting to MySQL in PHP



I need to connect to a MySQL database using PHP. I have a replica.my.cnf that I guess I have to use. What is the best way to connect to MySQL using this file, without exposing the user/pass in the PHP code?

There is no help about this in the tutorial.[1]
