DB passwords in config files

    XMLWordPrintable

Details

    Description

      It would be great if we could provide the password for the DB connection not directly in the configuration files of frontend and server. As alternative I thought about a ENV variable or at least accepting a hashed string in the files.

      I know it has been discussed some times in forum now and I found an old "Bugs and Issues" ticket too but I think it often is neglected from the wrong viewpoint. My point is not to see it as an issue if a user already on the server is reading the files - for us it's a problem because we want to have the config files in a git repository.

      As a workaround we currently are using and "install" script which requests the password and injects it.
