Re: Installation Problem (last time was a disaster!)
Changing the look and feel is all done with the templates and CSS, nothing in the database. If you don’t provide a link to the forum, no one will know about it. Of course, if someone guesses there’s a forum at mydomain.com/forum then it will be visible to them. If you’d like to restrict access to it while you are working on it, you can create an .htaccess and .htpasswd file for the public_html/forum directory on the server.
