How do I avoid to show the SQL Database password ?

Please correct me if i am wrong:

If i want a game to be able to influence certain variables in a SQL database, the database passwort has to be saved either on the webpage or in the game code. (like in the https://www.scirra.com/tutorials/525/si ... l-database tutorial ,where the password would be saved in login.php)

But could'nt anyone so inclined just read the password out and get access to the SQL database ?

Is there a way to influence SQL database values without entering the password ?

Or can the password made invisible somehow ?

Or doens't it matter as long as the user hasnt access to the webpage password ?

As you see i am quite new to this topic.

Thank you for an answer.
