What to do with other/install.php & other/upgrade.php?

Asked by jsherk on 2010-10-11

With the release of v3.0.0-Beta1 I noticed that you have a new directory called /other with both an install.php and an upgrade.php.

After a new installation, this directory is still accessible to anybody. Should the whole directory be deleted, or should there be some kind of access control setup on this directory?

This new directory, named "other" has been created to gather files which are not necessary for normal use of PHPDevShell. Currently it contains only install-related files, but it will be the place for other files like contrib code or debug-related stuff.
"install.php" and "upgrade.php" cannot be used without knowledge of some parameters from the config file; furthermore, they cannot be used on an already installed/upgraded system.
So, provided there's no security bug, they should not be a problem. Of course you can delete them after use, it's always safer.

Exactly as Greg said.

Can you help with this problem?
