This modification allows you to rename or move the config.php file.This is to protect your sensible information and increase the security of your vBulletin board.

The majority of boards get hacked because a hacker uploads a malicious script to get hold of the config.php content.But if you move or rename it,there is no chance that they find out the location of it.

If I'm hacker who had a 'shell' in your server, I'll view source of file class_core.php to find real path of config file. So what ?

Well in that case the previous author would have to be my father as this was written from scratch . And there's really not much about this mod, it would be like giving instructions to changing the background color of your site and claiming copyright for it

If they can read the config.php somehow, don't you think they could read other files? That's why my config.php is encrypted.

replace with

important is the .. !
This renaming will work just fine with vBulletin 4.0 and for vBSEO 3.5 RC2 you need to modify the config.xml file located here:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Differently then you see in the quote above since the config file is now an xml file .

Change the following lines and replace the newfolderlocation and newconfigname.php with your new folder and file names


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Then upload the config.xml file back to your server and no more errors from vBSEO .

Enjoy!

Mike
