Description

In Step 7 of the installation, the Security advice advises to change the permissions on outdated file paths:

Security advice: To protect your site, make the whole main/inc/conf/ directory read-only (chmod 0555 on Linux) and delete the main/install/ directory.

While the configuration is in config in the base directory now.

  • Priority changed from Normal to High

Also, the installation_guide.html (unstable) is outdated, as the following directories no longer apply:

root@debian3:/var/www# ls -l main/inc/conf/ main/upload/users/ main/default_course_document/images/ archive/ courses/ home/
ls: cannot access main/inc/conf/: No such file or directory
ls: cannot access main/upload/users/: No such file or directory
ls: cannot access archive/: No such file or directory
ls: cannot access courses/: No such file or directory
ls: cannot access home/: No such file or directory

So only main/inc/conf/ main/upload/users/ is still there. Could you fix this soon?

The messages were lost due the recent installation changes. I added those missing advices.

This task is getting closed by virtue of having closed #7273: the main/install/ directory no longer has to be deleted. It is safe.
