Securing your weblog

Movalog has a great article about securing your MT weblog using CGIwrap and suEXEC. Many hosts now offer this, mine included, and if they do it is a very good idea to take advantage of it for the reasons quoted in the article. Setting it up isn’t too difficult and it will make your files a lot harder to hack if you do.
incidentally of the four servers my host runs, one of them uses suEXEC on all CGI scripts and phpSuExec, and the others will have it running soon. I’ll be needing to make a couple of alterations to ensure everything still works but it’s reassuring to know that everything is protected.
