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.
