Enforce security for php_seo and gym_sitemaps directories

Postby librezine » Sat Jun 02, 2012 2:47 am


I just installed this premod included gym_sitemaps. I noticed that I can access again the install.php file in these 2 directories.
Should I delete following files after installation?:

Or I have to write a .htaccess file to increase security because I can list the files by browser.
Could you please advise?
Thanks & regards.

Only admins can run those install scripts. Other users will get this message:

The board requires you to be logged in as admin to view this page.
Your session has been destroyed for security purposes.
I install and configure phpBB-SEO (and other mods) for a fair price and very fast. If you are interested simply send me a private message.
