OK, so I have my forum up and it's alive - the logs look happy in the XAMPP Control panel and I have it set to auto start Apache - MySQL and FileZilla.
I now want to teak the settings so it's more or less protected from the world of baddies...... for example I added the line "allow from all" in the
httpd-xampp.conf file and it worked in as much as I can now see the site 68.XX.XXX.XXX/phpbb/index.php!
Great, but I can also get to the xampp setup screen if you point a browser to just the IP address without adding the /phpbb in there, you land on
68.XX.XXX.XXX/xampp which is probably not a good thing. (grin) What did I do wrong?
Also on the admin page after I login to ACP it very nicely tells me: "Hey dumbass, your config file (config.php) is currently world-writable.
We strongly encourage you to change the permissions to 640 or at least to 644 (for example: chmod 640 config.php)" I've looked and by
god, I can't find the chmod command on my old Dell SC1420 Server that I have windows 2003 server on ..... (grin) How do I fix this in the
old crusty 2003 server ....... ?
Lastly, what else should I do to lock this stuff down !? Thankings ....
