### WHAT IS PHPSECINFO?
PHPSecInfo is a PHP environment security auditing tool modeled after the
phpsecinfo() function.  From a single function call, PHPSecInfo runs a
series of tests on your PHP environment to identify potential security
issues and offer suggestions.  It can be useful as part of a multilayered
security approach.


#### WHAT IS PHPSECINFO NOT?
* It is not a replacement for secure coding practices
* It does not audit PHP code
* It is not comprehensive test for either your hosting environment
  or your web application
* It is not the "final word."  PHPSecInfo identifies *potential* problems
  and offers suggestions for improvement.  Your environment may _require_
  certain settings that trigger cautions or warnings.


### HOW DO I USE PHPSECINFO?

The simplest way:

* Uncompress and upload the contents of the archive to your web server's
  document root
* Open a browser and view the index.php file where you've uploaded the files
  (probably something like http://www.yourdomain.com/phpsecinfo/index.php)


### WHAT DO I DO IF I GET A NOTICE OR WARNING?

Read the explanation of the result carefully.  Research the issue on-line
-- resources like the php.net official docs and the PHP Security Guide are
very useful.  Investigate why your environment is set up in such a way.  If
there's not a compelling reason to keep it as-is, you should probably

Books:

### HOW CAN I CUSTOMIZE THE OUTPUT OF PHPSECINFO?

PHPSecInfo is intended to be used as a self-contained tool.  However, you
can obtain the test results in an array and then present this data in your
preferred format.

Example:
<code>
require_once('PhpSecInfo/PhpSecInfo.php');
// instantiate the class
$psi = new PhpSecInfo();

// load and run all tests
$psi->loadAndRun();

// grab the results as a multidimensional array
$results = $psi->getResultsAsArray();
echo "<pre>"; echo print_r($results, true); echo "</pre>";

// grab the standard results output as a string
$html = $psi->getOutput();

// send it to the browser
echo $html;
</code>


### HOW CAN I OFFER FEEDBACK, REPORT BUGS, COMPLAIN, ETC.?

The best way is to subscribe to and post on the PHPSecInfo Mailing List:
