Making the content of LC Server Scripts Safe

Afternoon all,

As I venture down the road of learning what the wonders of LC Server scripts can do I find myself wondering how safe are the content of these scripts.
Being completely new to Web and Server development it's probably a silly question but for example:

I have a LC Server script that is called from a mobile testing app that records the devices location into a MySQL Database using $_GET params.
In the LC Server Script file resides all my connection details for my database etc.

So, what stops someone from accidentally stumbling across that URL and getting the content of that file?

Or am I completely not understanding?

Sorry in advance :)
