Change the main website password (also known as the web hosting plan password) once a month. Use a combination of numbers, letters and symbols to form a secure password that is hard to guess or crack through hacking programs. For example, the password 'N3409Fn29aa' is harder to guess than 'sunshine29,'
Log in to each PHP script installed and in use (guestbook, blog, mailing list) and change their administrator passwords. Form difficult administrator password for each script that you're using on the website.
Update all scripts that are in use and are planned to be parts of the website in the future. Upgrade to latest available and stable versions by downloading them from the developers' websites. Update any security patches available through the developer. Outdated PHP scripts have insecure coding and are often hacked and injected with malware code.
Remove any scripts that are outdated and no longer in use. Delete the files off the web server or follow uninstall directions if available through your website's control panel.
Disable global directives and variables (which can be used to gain access to administrator panels and inject malware code) from your web hosting account. Alter the '.htaccess' file to secure the website and protect it from this common malice.
Load the Garena client.
Select 'Settings' in the upper right hand section of the screen.
Click 'Game Settings.'
Click 'Age of Empires: The Rise of Rome' or 'Age of Empires II: The Conquerors,' whichever one is installed on your computer.
Click 'Browse' under 'Executable Settings.'
Locate the .exe file that loads the game. Typically this will be in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires.
Find a room that has an open slot for an 'Age of Empires' game or click 'Host Game.' The game will boot up automatically.

If you host your own Wordpress.org Blog then you will have complete access to edit and customize your Wordpress Themes. However, if you have a free blog application through Wordpress.com then you will have limited blog editing capability. Wordpress.org is for self hosted users which means that you pay for your own blog domain name and hosting. The benefit to setting up your own self hosted blog is that you have complete control of how your blog looks. Wordpress.com users can only choose their blog theme, they can't customize them.
To customize your Wordpress.org blogging application you will want to log in to your blog admin panel by going to www.yourblog.com/wp-admin - use the user name and password you setup when you first installed your blog and login to the admin area. Once inside the admin section of the blog you will want to go to the Appearance tab on the left hand side of the page on click on Appearance to drop down the options unless it is already opened then you just want to click on Editor.
From the Editor page you have the ability to edit any Wordpress themes you have uploaded to your server. On the right side of the page are different pages that you can customize or modify to meet your blogging needs. The most common files you can edit are the style sheet, header, footer, main index or home, archives, search, comments, pages, single page, theme functions, and sidebar.
If you want to change the color of your blog or alter images then you will want to do so using the Cascading Style Sheet (CSS). Most of the other files are a combination of advanced HTML and PHP so you will have to know how to read some code before attempting to edit a Wordpress theme. This is where you can change how your blog looks and decide what type of layout you would like to have. Once you learn what you would like to add or subtract from your WP blog you will most likely use this editing section to create a custom design that will set your blog apart from other bloggers.

Download the Filezilla server application. While you may also want to download the client software, you will need the hosting software to set up your FTP server. A link to the download page can be found in the Resources section.
Run the Filezilla setup utility, FileZilla_Server-0_9_31.exe. You will have to agree to the license agreement before you can begin installation.
Select the standard installation type, and choose the folder you would like Filezilla to be installed to. You will next have to choose between automatically starting the program with Windows, or starting it manually. Starting the program with Windows is the recommended setting, and is marked as the default.
Set your start-up preferences for the server interface. By default, the server interface will start as soon as you log in. Press the 'Install' button, and click 'Close' when the installation has completed.
Run the Filezilla Server Interface. It will ask for your Port, which should by default be set to 14147, and the server address. Setting the server address to '127.0.0.1' will direct the computer to connect to itself. This will make the computer you are currently using the FTP server. Tick off the 'Always connect to this server' box, and click 'OK' to connect.
Login to the machine using remote desktop.
Go to the Inetpub\AdminScripts directory. This is typically on the same drive you installed windows, so c:\Inetpub\AdminScripts
Run the command
adsutil.vbs set /MSFTPSVC/PassivePortRange 'xxxx-yyyy'And replace xxxx with the starting port and yyyy with the ending port range.
