Database login info (2 posts)

    Hi everyone.
    First time user of WordPress blog, looking so good so far. My only concern right now is the database login information that I have written, as requested, on the wp-config.php file. How can I be sure that no one else is reading my database password and other crucial information from that life? At least when I try open that file in any browser it shows it as blank which I guess is the meaning of it. I have used some other blogs previously many years ago and I think I deleted or somehow blocked that type of info before going online with the blog. But how is it with WordPress?

    Thanks in advance,
    Sari

    I don't believe that wp-config.php can be seen by visitors.
