People do different things based on there setup.  I tend to use ENV vars and store them on the local server under /etc with a restricted account.  There's no official way to do this (we are not Rails :)). -jnap

I have a Catalyst / DBIx::Class application and I have been storing the database connection parameters in a config file which is sourced using MYAPP_CONFIG_LOCAL_SUFFIX. But this seems a bit of a security problem having the main password in a text file like this, especially if it goes into git.

Is there a recommended or best practice place to store database connection information?

Thanks for any help
