Security in Wikka

General thoughts

Wikka requires a webserver and mysql to work. To have a secure wikka you have to make sure that only authorized people have access to the files in the wikka-directory and to the mysql-database in which wikka is stored.

For security tips and options refer to the manual of your webserver software.

Password security

Every user on a wikka has a password to protect his/her account. This password is chosen upon the account registration and can be subsequently modified by the user.

Because knowing your password can enable someone to act in your name, you should choose it carefully (this is especially true for admins, who have more possibilities than normal users)

Needs to be rewritten with information about security guidelines followed by the Wikka Devs and antispam measures implemented in the engine.
