Other thing to protect your admin panel is allowing only specific IPs to view the admin dir.
Which is not good sometimes, because some users might have dynamic ones. Hi flAmingw0rm, btw <3
So you know this will not prevent hackers from hacking your forum, but reduce the chances.
Of course, as not only the web application side can be attacked. Hackers might symlink / root the server or just keylog you.
