Post your question to a community of 470,815 developers. It's quick & easy.

MySQL workaround query ?

How is it possible to work around a security issue with an Apache server
running phpSuExec and which doesn't allow the creation of arbrirary
MySQL username logins ?

I'd have thought that most 'payment & services' sites would use the
following sytem and all referencing a MySQL database to check details;

1) Details input by user first time.
2) Upon return, input login name and password.
3) Click on button for number of days (rerouting to PayPal,WorldPay or
whoever) for services.

I am informed that it is possible to access the cPanel by using a cPanel
script but I can't find script examples anywhere.

Many thanks for any help on this,
Richard.
