Well i have a few questions on how i should go about in making my website more safe.
Well first off i'm some what new to XAMPP and the seach thingy dont seem to be working for me so anyways sorry if this has been asked alrdy.
My problem that makes me ask this question.
Well i have hade my problems fixed with my website with my router problems i was having and now anyone can view my site but today i go to load up my web browser and i dont see my home page of my website but a user name and password box pops up.....someone made it so that i have to have a password and username to see the website i have made now? before i did not need to do this my website would just load for me and to others.
I have filled out the;
Security console MySQL & XAMPP directory protection
with a MYSQL SECTION: "ROOT" PASSWORD
i have made a password for this with the root for the username and also made a XAMPP DIRECTORY PROTECTION (.htaccess)
i did this at this url;
So did i forget to protect something? how was someone able to make it so that you have to type a username and password out to get to my site?
What are the steps i should follow when first setting up XAMPP for a website server? so it like 99% safe?
Thanks and sorry if this does not make much sense.
