Summary06771: Instructions on "Installation security hints" do not seem to apply to version 2.00+
DescriptionSee regarding "put the certain information from the config.php file in a non-web directory":

There is no $rootdir in config.php (anymore). Following the instructions and setting 'basePath' instead to the 'application'-folder (what dirname(dirname(__FILE__)) seems to do) and doing similar for 'runtimePath' limesurvey does stop somewhere (however I ensured the realconfig.php is found by inserting print-messages). Putting the confing.php directly in the config folder works

Carsten, I think we should add a section on how things are different at LS2. Since you know the system architecture far better, can you have a look at

Unfortunetly, the changed description does not work either. The script stops somewhere. However, without adapting the values for 'basePath' and 'runtimePath' in configreal.php I don't expect it to work, but setting it as described above does not work, too.
