How do I secure my Mambo site?
A simple question with a complex answer! It is complex because security issues arise from a variety of sources: your code, your server, the other things running on your server, the users, etc. While Mambo itself is relatively secure, you may still experience problems if the server is compromised or if a user gives up a password. The basic steps you should take however include:
  • Do not unnecessarily leave directories open with CHMOD set at 777 (configuration.php in particular should be set to chmod 644)
  • Delete your old installation directory (don't just rename it!).
  • Implement HTTP access controls for your admin login.
  • Make all your admin passwords at least 8 characters and containing symbols and numbers as well as letters.
There's more that you can do, but it is outside the scope of this FAQ.
Why can't I delete a Section / Category?
A Category must be empty of all Content Items before it can be deleted. A Section must be empty of all Categories before it can be deleted. Remember, in Mambo, when you delete an item, it moves to the Trash Manager. To delete it permanently, you must go to the Trash Manager and delete the items a second time; only then can you delete the related Category / Section.
What's the difference between a Section and a Category?
A Category is a subset of a Section. Content Items belong to Categories; Categories belong to Sections. The only exception to this hierarchy is Static Content, which exists outside of the Sections > Categories structure.
Do I have to keep this sample content?
No. This sample content appears because it was selected as an option during the installation process. The information contained in the site is intended to assist new users in learning the system and to help them get started using Mambo immediately. We have inserted the content using a variety of formats and options to help users get some idea of the choices available to them. You may delete any of this content without causing any problems to the site installation.
What is Static Content?
Static Content is simply a content item which is not part of a Section or a Category. Static Content cannot be added to a Blog, a Section or a Category. Static Content is, in other words, an independent, stand alone page. Static Content pages can be created, edited and deleted in the Static Content Manager. In the sample content you have installed with Mambo, the Main Menu choice "The Mambo License" shows an example of a Static Content page.
