comment Preventing SQL attacks
Sorry but the question is considered off topic because its more related to in-depth SQL security which would be more fitting on the Security Stack. Normally we would migrate questions across but in this instance we haven't because their appears to be over 300+ questions related to SQL Injection already on this Stack and is most likely a duplicate.

Sorry but your question does not comply with our quality rules. Your question is too specific and unlikely to help others, as well as being too board, too opinionated and duplicate. To avoid further disappointment and to create questions that are welcomed by the community please visit our help centre.

comment Cannot Understand a thing - About Adword message - "Your ad isn't being displayed for this keyword
Sorry but its confusing what you expect from the community. Google Ads has notified you of the issue in plain English. This keyword is already associated with at least one other ad in your account. Maybe its not English you need?

comment Is it a good practice to block spam bots by IP ranges?
If you had an extra 5 visitors a day that wouldn't be a problem right?... so why would it be with bots? nowadays hosting is cheap as nuts and much faster than it was 10 years ago... optimise your site and focus on your customers/visitors. The only ever time you should really need to block IPs is malicious attacks, or if you prefer you could throttle the bots.

comment How To Backup And Restore WP Installation And Database On Various Local Partitions?
Yes, http-vhost.conf is your virtual host. The filename can change depending on which linux you use, reason people generally refer to it as Virtual host file. You might want to look into deploying your websites using Digital Ocean or similar, simply use the WordPress droplet, only $5 for the month and much easier just to fire up a new WordPress install without having to remove previous websites or new WAMP images.

comment How To Backup And Restore WP Installation And Database On Various Local Partitions?
Ideally... you should use mysqldump, or install phpmyadmin to your Apache which makes administrating databases with ease, and then use SFTP to backup both the www folder and the virtual hosts file. Your find plently of tutorials by searching 'how to backup mysql' most will use the mysqldump method. Personally, I'd just opt to use CYAN backup, which is a WordPress plugin, extremely lite and simply performs a sqldump and zips the SQL database and WP folder, you only need to install it every time you want a backup, you will however need to use MySQL to import the sql back in.

You can find plenty of information regarding virtual host files on Pro Webmasters. MySQL backups related questions on both Stack Overflow, Pro Webmasters and Server Fault.

Sorry but the question is far too board, as currently your question requires a entire tutorial on how to backup the SQL, Virtual Hosts, Mod Rewrites and WordPress files.

comment What are the htaccess mechanics of preventing search engines from indexing PDF files?
@w3d Google can and does sometimes crawls blocked content in robots.txt. Even Google recommends you use no-index with robots.

Then <FilesMatch ".pdf$"> will stop Google indexing PDF's all together. You can reforce it with robots.txt if you wish but its not required unless your system goes AWOL and removes the x tag.

comment What are the htaccess mechanics of preventing search engines from indexing PDF files?
Do you want to disallow crawling or indexing? there's never any guarantee that Google or any other search bot won't crawl anything, even with blocks in robots, no index and no follow.

comment Strange rapid grow in visitors
Sorry but currently the question is impossible to answer without speculating which is something we try and avoid. You should check your WMT for increases in keyword and impressions, Analytics's and for security check your access & error logs. With that information you should be able to tell yourself or share that information with us. It's likely that your rankings have gone up 1,000 visitors a month is only around 33 visitors a day, even through a 100% increase may seem a lot when dealing with low numbers you often see bigger gains and bigger loses.
