    Hi there,
    I'd love install WordPress 2.5.1, but I have a question about security.
    If i upload wp-config.php with all the password of my database, what can prevent to be hacked?
    I mean, an easy way to stole a password is to download that page..
    So what can I do to avoid hacking ?

    If you can download (and see the values in) wp-config.php, then that means that PHP is not configured correctly on your server and a chat with your host would be in order.

    You are funny, MichaelH. But he is right.

    In the meantime, you want to choose a web host carefully. Many websites hosted at the same companies (Spoono Host, PowWeb, 34SP.com...) are under repeated exploitation. No B.S.
