    Hi all,

    How can I install WP 2.0 to seperate wp-admin folder to enhance security? I want to install the folder in different location rather than in WordPress folder or add more levels to stop the hacker to hack my site by using wordpress/wp-admin/ Thanks

    You will have to change alot of code I think to do this. But I have never been hacked.

    If you use apache and linux you can also limit the type of injection calls using mod_security.

    Hi Sgrayban

    Thanks for your reply. But how can I use the mod_security to tighten the security. Or can you provide some links that I can look for (Specifically on installing WP). Thanks
