Hi Everyone:

So I have finally completed my first SS site. The site is built and has been moved to the root directory and running like well oiled machine!!

My question is: Are there files I should consider removing that were part of the install, either to clean up the directory or to maintain security integrity?


Thanks in advance!

Any other suggestions for solidifying the site after an instal would be greatly appreciated.

INSTALL and UPGRADING are plain txt files so they don't pose a security risk as such but you can remove them. Make sure you have removed the install.php file. You can also remove the rewritetest.php file after you have installed
