Encrypt database password
This method uses a Base64 cipher, which is simple obfuscation. It is a straightforward solution for users who don’t want to store database passwords in plain-text.
This method allows you to choose an algorithm to encrypt a database password. It provides more security as you don't have to store the encrypted password anywhere in the configuration file, which makes it difficult for unauthorised parties to find and decrypt it.
If you have special requirements for database password encryption, you can create your own encryption mechanism based on our examples.
