in reply to Where should I have configuration information in a file or database

Depends on your application. If the rest of the application needs a database anyway, you might store the configuration in there too. But if part of that configuration is the name and password of the database, obviously the database isn't a good place to store it ;-)

In most cases a file is easier to handle, faster to access and easier to edit by hand
