in thread How to prevent database from listing/viewing?

I hadn't thought about renaming the file, but that could work. My webserver is configured to not serve files that are named beginning with a dot. This is to prevent the .htaccess .htpasswd .listing maintenence type files from being served to the world. Again, this all depends on your server setup, but you could try renaming the file to .database or something.

[marinersk]: Corion This DBA wants to smack others who like putting whitespace in column names.
[marinersk]: s/smack/whap/;
[talexb]: Wow, what hilariously bad form.
[SuicideJunkie]: Just wait; someday soon, you'll be given a DB with unicode emojis in the column names.
[Corion]: marinersk: Well, I have done select statements like select sum(foo) as "Total Amount", ..., but to have a table like that makes me shudder
[Corion]: SuicideJunkie: :-D
[marinersk]: SuicideJunkie LOL
[choroba]: Woohoo! Fixed a test that hasn't run for 3 years.
[marinersk]: Corion Yes, sometimes whitespace in column headers is acceptable, but I still consider it be less than desireable if that query might get revectored for an ETL-esque process...
[marinersk]: choroba++
