Because of problems with spammers i been updating my hosting eg. I.P's Spam protection, i changed my hosting password

Carried on working on my old sites the logged into my new 2.1.6 site, I could not login got the "something when wrong " error message as had not altered anything except my hosting password, so looked at the config.php the password is in normal text not encrypted at all, is this normal? I changed the password and all is ok now.

// Database

$Configuration['Database']['Name'] = 'h*****ha_Isaanlife';

$Configuration['Database']['Host'] = 'localhost';

$Configuration['Database']['User'] = 'h*****ha';

$Configuration['Database']['Password'] = 'MYPASSWORD';

$Configuration['Debug'] = FALSE;
