    1. Hi, Mukesh. Great video! Your videos are very informative and have helped me a lot. I currently use a C-panel instance with my WordPress website and a custom PHP patient account portal under a subdomain. The portal has sensitive Hippa compliant medical information and the development files both in the public folder with the website files and folders. I'm debating changing the entire system to compartmentalize my website from my portal files but keep it under the subdomain since i can't figure out how to hide this folder from other users. I'm thinking of creating a few instances where I can use a load balancer with stand-alone Word Press instances to have more than one server for the website and have a separate My SQL database Instance to put the portal files sensitive info. I want to do this so developers who need to work on the website cannot access the portal files. Currently, when I give them Cpanel access, a user can see everything. Also, it seems that I can have more control and security this way.
      My question is if I connect the website to the remote database can I give the PHP My Admin credentials to a user from the WordPress instance without them having access to the files in the database instance since they will be connected?
