Hi wpsec, and thank you very very much for this huge good security content.
I have 2 versions of my website: one local on which I am experimenting all new changes and another one hosted by an online provider.
So for now, I am only trying things on my local website (using xampp), waiting for the moment when all security will be fixed on this version to do it online. I have another issue: using new permalink structure.
Concerning the databases prefix, I managed to change that by doing this (again, I am using xampp+my local website is only made for local testing:
step a) Finding the “httpd.conf” file under the “conf” folder inside the Apache’s installation folder.
step b) Find the following line “#LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so” in the “httpd.conf” file.
step c) Remove the “#” at the starting of the line, “#” represents that line is commented.
I succeeded change the db prefix, but is it a secure way to do this? Must I disable rewrite mode after?
I do not succeed changing the write access of my local files... I understand I have to connect with ftp on my server, as if it was a "distant website"... Must I define a username+password to access this local website? oups sorry, I am a bit lost here...
