Secure your e-Store Application (website) using PHP & MySQL

Secure your e-Store Application (website) using PHP & MySQL

Website security is one of the prime concerns today where important or relevant data can be safely stored and anyone who visits the site is not able to access the information that is not meant to be shared. PHP MySQL development sites are best suited to fulfill these needs where one can easily control the visitor’s status.

The combination of both PHP and MySQL provides unlimited options to create any kind of website from a small PDF file to a large corporate portal. PHP is one of the most popular scripting languages for web development whereas SQL (Structured Query Language) is very popular for managing database content and is very easy to use. The connectivity, speed, and security brought through PHP MySQL are extremely applicable for accessing databases on the internet. Thus it has been successfully used in highly demanding environments for many years.

While creating a website its essential that the developer is aware of what the user is allowed to do. Developing a securely written PHP and MySQL code provides adequate defense for the website. The security issues mostly work on the Access Control List fundamental, which controls and responds all kinds of connections and queries from the activities performed by users. With the help of this users can be provided with different access status and major interactions can be built with clients, while allowing them to only view the websites. This ensures that the website is not susceptible to any kind of misuse or theft of information.

Despite all the measures taken there are always chances that people barge into the unwanted zone. As a matter of fact more the user visits the website, more there is risk to data security. There are certain things which have to be kept in mind during PHP MySQL development while ensuring security. The following steps are:

1. Restricting the files being uploaded on the website and renaming files to secure the program
2. Accessing of database not to be allowed for everyone
3. Not choosing passwords from dictionaries as they get hacked easily, as well as using programs that could break the passwords
4. Confirming the inputs of users from the server side to enhance security
5. Effectively crosschecking the inputs from users by checking the stars and prompting the user name
6. Ensuring that the user input with the SQL query is not used directly
7. Making sure that the PHP MySQL development remains extensively secured by having the latest and updated third party code libraries
8. Handling confidential information with the help of PHP extension to avoid hacking and changing of passwords
9. Maintaining updates about the new PHP official sites and researching about whatever is new in PHP MySQL development

In conclusion, it can be said that where security issues are concerned in work and where relevant information is at stake then everything should be properly checked. So to prevent hacking and ensuring that all the important data is in the right hands one should use PHP MySQL development and oversee the above mentioned security tips for website safety.
