Hi,

I just installed a proxy on my NAS (Glype).
It shows me "do not leave it this way!" for security reasons, but what do I have to do to "secure" my glype-page, normally there is an install.php to remove ...?
Just want to make sure the php-app is safe.

with the install.php leave after you installed, it will lead to hacker to reinstall your site by accessing your proxy site by typing:

http://www.yoursite.com/install.php or http://www.yoursite.com/install/install.php

it is advised to rename it to something else such as asdasd.php swdasd876.php so that hacker would able to guess it.

also

you can remove it totally from your website, its no harm to remove install.php

hope that help.

There is an admin.php page in the root dir. Maybe glype informs you that the directories have too much rights ? Where do you see this info ? On the main screen ?

Don't see it anymore. I'd have to reinstall. Never mind, it's local use only.
