  • What is the main idea of “Silence is golden” file?

    Is it ok when it appears to exist in the folders other than “backup”?

    Hi there,

    Remember to get support from support@wpb2d.com

    On some servers Apache will list the contents of the directory by default allowing the public to download its contents which is a security concern.

    By putting a blank index.php in the directory it will render it instead of the contents of the directory thus hiding them from view.

    Adding the “Silence is golden” comment is a WordPress thing that I copied, you’d have to ask Matt why it started 🙂

    Cheers,
    Mikey
