It says in the documentation:
"The default configuration is not good from a securtiy point of view and it's not secure enough for a production environment - please don't use XAMPP in such environment."
"XAMPP is not meant for production use but only for developers in a development environment"
But if I follow the the instructions under "A matter of security (A MUST READ!)", is it still not secure for a production environment? Is it then better to install everything manually and not use XAMPP at all? Can't a XAMPP installation be as secure as a manual installation of Apache, MySql, Perl etc if I just follow AF:s instructions and the instructions from the developers behind Apache, MySQL etc?
