I'm new to geeklog, and I'm planning to install geeklog on my shared server hosting which is having cPanel. It'll be installed in a folder under public_html. That is, it'll be like /home/myusername/public_html/blog
My first question: is it safe? Because public_html is web root, I guess that's where I should install and not in any other place.
And second but important question: What are the basic security risks, and what counter measures to take? Can you provide some basic security checklist?
The geeklog will be installed automatically using application installer available in cPanel.
Thank you very much.
