Last installation settings
Once Chamilo is installed, the success message also brings a short warning message
« Security hint: To protect your site, please change permissions on main/inc/conf/configuration.php and main/install/index.php (not their directories) to read-only (CHMOD 444). »
Illustration 11: Installation – Installation report
It is preferable, in fact, to remove the main/install/ directory completely (the confirmation text is not really accurate about this):
user@server:/var/www/chamilo$ sudo rm -rf main/install/
This will prevent anybody (except the root user) to see this directory, and thus to use it.
For the configuration.php file, 0444 are the appropriate permissions to assign:
user@server:/var/www/chamilo/$ cd main/inc/conf/
user@server:/var/www/chamilo/main/inc/conf$ sudo chmod 0444 configuration.php
When this operation is completed, using Chamilo can begin safely clicking on the Go to the newly created portal link.
