    Block hack attempts from all foreign & unknown locations.

    The file /etc/hosts.deny on Unix/Linux can block login attempts based on counties. The below is a simple host.deny file to block all countries but your own ( in my case Australia), sure this is not the whole answer to securing a system but it sure cuts down the number of hack attempts.

    sudo vi /etc/hosts.allow

    #
    # hosts.deny This file describes the names of the hosts which are
    # *not* allowed to use the local INET services, as decided
    # by the '/usr/sbin/tcpd' server.
    #
    # We will block *all

    Does renaming a page's path automatically redirect from the old page path?

    Pages can have any number of aliases. When a page's path is renamed the system will automatically add an alias from the page's previous path to the current page.

    This prevents 404 errors which are a well known cause of user frustration and lower SEO rankings.

    When a user requests a URL first a matching page is searched then the page aliases are searched, if a matching page alias is found then that page is used. There are NO 301/302 errors returned there is just many paths to the same page.
