Xampp and security for production environment

Postby gghs » 14. February 2007 23:46

The website says
"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.
Since LAMPP 0.9.5 you can make your XAMPP installation secure by calling »/opt/lampp/lampp security«. "

Can someone advise me as to whether this means that security on Xampp can be configured in order to make the installation robust enough for a production environment ?

Are these instructions from the Xampp for Windows page sufficient to secure the installation:

"Here a list of missing security in XAMPP:

The MySQL administrator (root) has no password.
The MySQL daemon is accessible via network.
PhpMyAdmin is accessible via network.
Examples are accessible via network.
The user of Mercury and FileZilla are known.
Please secure XAMPP before publishing anything online. A firewall or an external router are only sufficient for low levels of security. For slightly more security, you can run the "XAMPP Security console" and assign passwords."

I guess this is not important?

What the fuck is wrong with you people?

Answer the damn question!

I came here looking for the same goddamn answer, and I've found no less than six other people asking--with no response!

What is your fucking problem?
