Thanks for your reply. Safe mode was set to --> safe_mode = Off during installation as was --> safe_mode_gid = Off and I've left those as they were.
As for the "disable_functions =" and "disable_class =" seeing as I have no idea what that is in reference I have left them empty rather than take a chance of messing something up.
I'm using the "php.ini-recomended" file for my "php.ini" file and I'm trying to heed any\all warnings or suggestions that I come across as I look through it but a lot of that stuff is confusing to me because I don't understand what it means.
I'm still trying to develop 'My Geekness' here and I'm struggling to understand the terminology that most of the manuals kind of take for granted that everyone already knows.
I mean like the "disable_functions =" statement, I don't really know what is meant by 'function' but by reading through all of that stuff I'm figuring that that means any action that the program might preform.
Anyway I opted to leave "disable_functions =" , "disable_class =" and "user_dir =" blank until I knew for sure what to put in them.
--> Securing the web server, Apache, should be done in Apache. <-- This is an example of my lack of Geekness.
Every time I try to get to some of the juicy stuff in Apache like say --> C:\Apache\Apache2\manual\bind.html <-- or faq
I get something like this;
--> URI: bind.html.en Content-Language: en Content-type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1 URI: bind.html.es Content-Language: es Content-type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1 URI: bind.html.fr Content-Language: fr Content-type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1 URI: bind.html.ja.euc-jp Content-Language: ja Content-type: text/html; charset=EUC-JP URI: bind.html.ko.euc-kr Content-Language: ko Content-type: text/html; charset=EUC-KR <--
If I open it in wordpad it's easier to read BUTT I still have no idea what its saying. So where should I be looking in Apache to get my security settings set?
Sorry to be such a bother, and thanks for your help Boo.
