I'm currently making a classifieds script based on ASP. Currently it has all configuration data in a file called config.asp . I would like to store these settings in the db(access). does anyone know a good and safe way to do this?

Normally, that type of configuration data actually has the database access info in it. I would make sure that's not the case first.

Or are you saying your current setup doesn't use a database at all?

You might look into reading the configuration information from the database in an encrypted format. Google "encryption + ASP" and should find a weath of examples to use as a starting point.
