Put Your phpNuke Site on Steroids or How to Keep Hackers Out

Voided Warranty has posted an article about securing PHP-Nuke installations
What prompted me to write this article was that we had some hackers that tried to Void our Warranty and trying to find solutions between hackings can be frustrating, to say the least. I guess I should use the correct terminology for these Script Kiddies, they are really called crackers and not hackers. This is according to a few articles I've read. Hackers don't want to be put into the same category as crackers. Hackers, according to one article, will hack a site and not deface it or destroy any information. They will also let the owner of the site know they accessed your site and tell you how they did it. On the other hand, the crackers will deface your site and possibly destroy the information on it and not notify you about it.
