Ive recently installed phpbb3 rc5 without any problems,
One question i got is i installed not in public_html folder but made a folder and in that folder like''sp'',
In that folder contains the phpb3 files.
So then you ofcourse know we got a problem when you go to http://www.mysite.com
,it does not view the index.php because its in the ''sp' folder.
I did this for some extra security reasons ,because hackers always search or index at the public_html folder.
What i want is my phpbb3 in a different folder and still can enter the site without having to type http://www.mysite.com/sp
I was thinking about a redirect file like a index.html file in the public_html folder so it will automatically redirect to http://www.mysite.com/sp
when you enter this http://www.mysite.com
As you know many automated scripts/exploits use default directorys/installations that havent been customized by the user . Becuase i got hacked one time and big time by a script called c99.php but i had a buggy installation of phpnuke . SO now i want to customise standard settings to make a little bit safer for my phpbb 3 installation.
Sorry for so much typing but im trying to clear my point /problem so others can also have help with this.
Now do you guys know an alternative for my above described issue? Thank you very much for taking the time to read this and answer.
