In Topic: cookie-less subdomain

27 October 2011 - 04:57 AM

I have been trying to server all my static content from a cookie-less subdomain because it is supposed to improve site performance. I am having trouble getting my subdomain to not leave cookies. I am running a wordpress site on that domain and I put this into the wp-config.php:

define('COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'lrastart.org');

My site is in my signature.

useful post...good work...

In Topic: CMS Security

27 October 2011 - 04:56 AM

Of the various blogging and CMS packages, Wordpress seems to be the most secure when actual installations are evaluated:

The study was of over a million websites, and other software packages didn't fare as well. There's a list at that article, but Joomla was near the top of it at 91 percent of the installations being insecure. Drupal, another popular CMS, had vulnerabilities in 69 percent of the installations.

The article cites the easy one-click update option for Wordpress as being a main factor; I've found that with my customers as well. Having to download an update, extract it to disk, then FTP the files to the server, as needed with Joomla and Drupal, is too complex for many web hosts. I think phpBB also has a "one click" update option.

good study....
