Hi, I’m using Google’s SMTP server to act as the integration for my contact form (PHP). The site is being hosted in your App Platform, I don’t really want to have to use Droplet. I’ve had it working locally, but before I’m ready to use it on the App Platform I need to figure out how to correctly store the SMTP Password.
I don’t want to commit it to code for obvious reasons, but I’m struggling to find out how I can use it. I’m looking at environment variables which are encrypted, but I can’t seem to find any documentation for decrypting it so I can actually use the password for authentication. I don’t really want to have to go down the route of MySQL to store my SMTP credentials, but if I have to then fine.
Any help / advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
