Missing security settings


Recommended Posts

There isn't one there in IPS 4. The various security related settings like two factor authentication appear in the Settings section.

If you're looking for things like the old setting to allow you to have the web server provide another layer of password security that used to be in 3.x, it's gone. You can easily set web server password authentication for your admin area manually using one of many websites that explain how to do it or in your web hosting control panel, as many of them provide tools to do this very thing.

In terms of getting warnings about unsafe server settings and the like, they will appear automatically on the dashboard if IPS detects any.

The developers said elsewhere that they did this in 4.x because some of the security settings 3.x use to recommend weren't that effective and they removed some that were confusing.
