Read xml from string vs read xml from external file


Recommended Posts

Can you tell me Which is better between reading xml from a string or external file?

Neither is really "better", I guess it depends what your goal is.




Is it unsecure if i store database password to an external xml file?

If the password is encrypted and the file is not publicly accessible then it should be fine.




Is it slow to read xml from a string ?

Slow compared to what? If you need to access the file to read the data into a variable then you're still accessing the filesystem.

keeping the files out of web root will be safest. Also you can use .htaccess to restrict access to files
