This is because of those kind of thing that I want to know "how" to secure the new wiki properly since I don't want to abuse Parodius bandwidth because of some crackers like to hide some porn on it...

Anybody knows about some good guidelines for securing it? I already installed re-capatcha but I'm sure there must be other things that I must know.

I'd hope that re-captcha is better than what came with phpBB. Because it was getting passed by bots all day every day until a custom question got added to the registration page. Having something unique should help with that.

It doesn't seems so bad. I'm no expert in captcha thought. It seems to use 2 words at the same time. We will know soon how it goes.

What I'm more concerned is if there is any default setting that can wreak havoc on the site since the installation was too simple for my taste. This almost feel like a plain vanilla IIS on a Win2000 system...
