    Thank you. I've done it and it seems to work fine.

    Either way will work, but this is the method I would recommend. It's easier to just modify the permissions on the config file itself.

    However, I do not want them knowing the MySQL credentials, so what I have done is moved my config.php file to a "config" folder inside the includes folder, then edited config.php inside the includes folder and removed everything, and added this:

    PHP Code:
    <?php include("config/config.php"); ?>
    I have also added an index.html file in the config folder.

    Is this ok? Will I have any issues with vB in the future? Insofar, it seems to be working fine using this method. I do understand that whenever I upgrade I will have to do this again.
