Yes, it's like easymod.

One thing I found when looking through the code:

Code: Select all

$this->phpbb_path = dirname($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']);


You should never use PHP_SELF, it's not secure. The user can change it by calling an url such as:

Code: Select all

/automodx/index.php/somethingelse/


I've not really tested it yet though. ;)

I don't know Andre. AutoModX looks similar to the ACP. Like the ACP, it exists in it's own folder, so it just get's copied and executed.

He would need to get past a double layer of authentication first.

But thanks anyway.

Correct, the correct code for this situation would be:

$this->phpbb_path = __DIR__;
or
$this->phpbb_path = dirname(__FILE__);

These lines will read directly from the PHP processor and get the file's absolute path from the server, not the client.
Life in the house :)
