    Okay so cPanel has API I can use. In order to take advantage of cpanel's API, I use curl.

    However in order to connect to my server using curl and API, i have to store the remote access key somewhere, which means my mysql database.

    My question is, is there a way to mask or encrypt the remote access key stored in mysql database? MD5 does not work since it cannot be decoded, and i need to retrieve the remote access key from my mysql database to connect from and to the server

    encryption remote access key stored in mysql database`

    Hello,

    We would suggest you to contact your DB (DataBase Administrator) so that DB admin can fire required query to retrieve the remote access key which is stored in mysql database. You would be getting better assistance with it and hope this helps you soon.
