Excellent tutorial for securing XnForo backend, quite a long ago I was searching for this type of solution to give my forum high protection, this guide helped to maximize in the particular security type. Thanks !
8 years after first being posted and this is still the first thing I hunt down when doing a new install. Okay so i've not done one in 5 years, but hey, great that it is still relevent.
Perfect! This tip was exactly what I was looking for to secure the APC.
Just one comment, it could be good to add in the description how to generate a salt hash password. The command I used was
perl -le 'print crypt("my_password", "salt-hash")'
This is an excellent article, tailored to the newbie's level of understanding. I learned how to: Use IP address based protection, from reading it. As they say, "An ounce of prevention, is worth a pound of cure!"
An excellent resource for anyone that might want to add an extra layer of protection to their admin panel and Install directory. Thanks for sharing this.
Awesome
