    Is it possible to connect to mysql database through a php file

    I am trying to find out some options through which I can connect to a mysql database through a php file. And I want to know how to do that .I am actually working a project where a mysql database can get vulnerable easily. If I do not provide anyone access to the database then still it can be accessible or not. I am not just talking about the regular web environment where many people manage their website through cpanel. There are few bunch of users who will be having ftp access.

    Whatever you try, it is not possible without having the database username and password. Even if there is some php script which can connect you to the database, you will need the login details. Or else it is not going to work. IT is very hard to directly enter the database and it can be done by some expert only. Hosting providers take things very seriously. They do not just allow multiple attempts to database login. There are lots of restrictions.

    Through ftp someone can mess with your site but not with the database. Unless you had kept the ftp login, cpanel login and database login as one and same. It is right that to connect to the database you will need the login details. Or else it is not going to work. It is very complicated from all angle. Also the persons must know the database name also. It is good avoid offering multiple access to your web server if you want to keep things safe.
