Hello everyone, I'm a bit of a newb when it comes to computer programming and web development design. I need some help determining what security features or software would be best suited to protect my computer files from getting stolen, altered or even viewed by anyone other than myself.

I have developed a review board forum (phpbb3 software, version 3.0.10) Mysql database on Apache. I am open to suggestions about what would be the best route for me to take in terms of security. I heard there is encryption and/or hashing? not sure which one to use or how to do it, nor do i know what software is suitable for me.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks everyone.:thumbsup:

Probably I would have said to keep your computer password protected, no one can dare open it out. Just joking. Actually this is the first time when I have come across this type of query as i have also not heard of any such software. May be other experienced members would sort out your problem. One more thing is that, you have discussed here regarding your board forum. So are you more concerned about the security of your computer files or forum ?
