SourceMod plugins are trivially decompilable, and you are required by law to include the source code when distributing binaries - this isn't providing you any advantage, just use the config (and build a web api for untrusted users).

Asherkin, that is irrelevant if the OP has zero intention of sharing the plugin (i.e. Fully private to himself).

Regardless, why would you opt to hardcode such data instead of using a config?

Then there is no reason not to use the config.

If there is a function CustomConnect this means that it is permitted.
I clearly written.. "I want to use custom connect, no config."..
Plugin is private, I do not understand why I should share my DB pass on ftp...

If someone can get the SMX, they can get the DB credentials - they're no more secure in the plugin than they are in databases.cfg.

If you want to see, compile a trivial plugin with a secret string in it, and upload it to http://mrderp.xyz/lysis/.

Hardly anyone knows what is decompiler, Any idiot can pull data from Databases.cfg.
Can someone help me ? Whether we will continue to talk about config.

Because I don't want to modify database.cfg 12 times for 12 servers?

Just because you don't see a use for it doesn't mean the rest of the world doesn't.

Close the db handle or return it if you want to use it later. Other than that, I don't see any problems with that function. Post the output if you want help, you need to be more specific about those "errors".

If you want to talk about security, if someone has access to your server files, it's game over. Hardcoding credentials is not a reliable solution because you can't be shure that only trusted entities have them.
