What are these and how do they work in the Wordpress installation. I understand once these are generated they should be pasted into the wp-config.php file in my WP installation located on the web server. But I don’t understand the mechanics of what function they perform. Is there some kind of handshaking going on and between what?
I’m a newbie at all of this so have an el cheapo shared hosting package from DH which suits me fine until I learn the ropes. From a little bit of exploring I can see a listing for ‘/’ where I have no privileges as I’m not root. When I try to list what’s in ‘/home’ I’m told permission denied. When I drill down to my actual home directory I can see I finally have permissions and can see my domain directory which contains the WP installation. So I take it anything above my actual home directory is off limits and belongs to the DH admins.
Thanks for any guidance
