security with mysql

can someone point me in the direction of getting secure connection to mysql from unity. i would probably have to send username and password to php and get connected to database and i want to do it securely.

in fact i would not do that from web player, in web player i would use php functions to connect to database but loging would probably do prior to starting unity.

as far as standalone is concerned i would have to do it through unity.

insights on this subject are highly appreaciated thanks!

if you get MSVC#2010 you can do it by c# too, no need for php. VS has more utilities to control mysql aswell. You do not need MSVC, any IDE and/or compiler would do though.

Can't help you further on it but hey it's a start.
