[Tutorial] How to secure your MyBB forum from hackers!

This is a small article I wrote up about securing MyBB forums. Some methods can of course be used with another forum softwares. Anyway, you can check it on my blog.

Also, I need constructive critism about my blog.

Thank you
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.
