    I was wondering why "WindowsAzure" is installed when installing the XenoForo and what it is needed for?

    Can I delete it, there was 255 GB movies in theres uploadet yesterday..

    Is there any help here?

    It's unrelated to XF.

    You may want to contact your sysadmin or host to determine how the files were uploaded to the server.

    It would help if you were a little more "specific". Is this installing it on a Windows Server? Because in all my installs on Linux I've never seen that.

    Well, that's not what interest me, I already did so.. and they securing the server now.. but why is this installed at all? or is it not part of XenoForo? IF I google it, I can see there are questions here where people ask about to use WindowsAzuru for XenoForo so that's why I assume it is part of the package?

    As far as I know there is no 'ZEND' directory within XF but there is a "Zend" directory located at /library/Zend/.

    There is an article or two for xenforo specifics. Which is basically password protecting the admin login area and something else similar.

    The best practices otherwise are the same for any other PHP software. In general either your hosting is properly configured or its not. Xenforo is not likely to be the weak point in your security. Though like anything it could be.

    Off hand for the directory protection. Personally I dont do that but it can be useful.

    Our server stopped getting exploited the day I got rid of vBulletin and installed Xenforo. Not a single penetration since lol. I don't even think the server is remotely secure but we used to have a weak spot for sure.
