we are trying to use wordpress for the first time and did an install on our server. we are trying to migrate from blogger.
anyway, we noticed that in our web logs that people have found access to the admin/upgrade page for the wordpress. is there a way to protect all of the directories and not interfere with functionality? i dont think it is a cookie thing since i tested it on another machine.
also, is it better to have wordpress on a subdomain or in another folder on the main domain? we cannot run it in the domains root folder due to other items that need to run there. we are concerned with security and seo issues running this. we like what it offers with the upgrades that are out there.
thanks for any assistance.
