I am mostly a front-end developer but I know a bit of PHP and would like to work on that skill and make some projects. But I have a problem, which is that I'm very nervous about security. I know that's not much of an issue in a local environment, but I'd like to make my creations public and as soon as I do so, I'll have to worry about it. Anything to do with connecting to a database has me worried. Security best practices are fairly confusing for a newbie, so I'm pretty afraid I won't get it/will mess up. How can I deal with this? I feel like I will be much more employable if I learn this stuff and it will really increase the amount of things I can create. But I don't know how to stop worrying about security - how to be confident my creations don't have any major security flaws. To be clear, anything I would do with these skills for my personal projects would be fairly simple, and probably not much sensitive information will be involved, but I'm still worried.
