Support » Installing WordPress » installation security (delete any files ?)

  • hi,

    just installed wordpress, and all is fine. 🙂

    i read the install guide but there’s no mention at the end of removing any files or at least changing their permissions on the server, so now i ask, do we have to delete any files/directories from the wordpress directory after install (like one must with forum software, for example), for security ?

    now that it is installed shouldn’t i delete the install.php file from wp-admin directory ?

    please advise

    i would and I do .. you can also do away with upgrade.php and install-helper.php

    done and done…… thanks
    shouldn’t this be specified in the install guide at the end as a rather important footnote ? or is it NOT a security risk after a new install ?




    that depends on who you talk to, i guess 😛

    Im the wrong person to ask though — im outspoken enough already.
