security issues

Postby silent06 » 04. May 2019 12:09

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone has any tips on securing xampp better? Ive been hacked a few times. I have a listener that works with clients as they connect to my VPS. The only thing I work with is the panel, so I really dont need a website. So, what happened was, someone made a duplicate account with admin privilages & basically go into my vps. Im thinking it was sql injections, but im not sure. I was using an SSL certificate from lets encrypt, but the httdocs folder was still using http. Would it be possible to turn http off & just use https?


thanks,

Don't use XAMPP on public accessible environments
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!

Of course. Simply switch off listening to Port 80 (i.e. delete "Listen *:80" or similar line in your httpd.conf) and you are done.

ok, different question. I need to be able to access myphpadmin. Could I just do this locally on my vps? Like, I dont want any external connections to be able to access it.

Thats exactly how Xampp is configured out of the box: phpmyadmin can only accessed from localhost.
