In an attempt to secure the PHP/PostgreSQL server Im working on, I've setup Postgres so that any connection made to the database requires a valid password.

Now to connect to the DB via PHP, I have the password hard coded (which is in clear text).

Here is my question: Is there a way around storing the password in clear text?
