    Hi, all
    I have tried your plesk 7.5.6 (install in windows server
    2003), butI have something problem about your software
    Is there a place where I can find a guide on how to harden the
    server's security?
    If I use webadmin.php utility, I can have access to all the files
    (view everything in my hard disk) in the server (a desirable hacker
    tool) yet,. as an Admin of the server,. I'm not really happy with
    this.
    I found that your plesk software use permission for user Everyone from
    C:\. I don't like that (for security I must be remove permission for
    user Everyone from C:\, Leave only Administrator on C:\ )

    I have removed user Everyone from C:\, and then Install your plesk
    7.5.6 but it error to operation and roll back the install process).

    I use permission for user Everyone from C:\ (Administrators - full
    control over this folder, subfolders and files.SYSTEM - full control
    over this folder, subfolders and files.Everyone - read and execute
    permission for this folder only).
    I also check permission for the plesk folder and Vitual host folder
    following your document (plesk-7.5.6-win-reconfigurator-guide) and run
    tool plesk reconfigurator
    But, If I use webadmin.php utility, I can have access to all the files
    (view everything in my hard disk) in the server (a desirable hacker
    tool) yet,. as an Admin of the server,. I'm not really happy with
    this.

    I want "Remove user Everyone from C:\"
    I want "Leave only Administrator on C:\"

    etc..?
    for security

    Thanks
