    Should I disallow root login remotely on a VPS host?

    Hi,
    It set up a website on a VPS hosting for the first time and encountered this question:
    Code:
    Disallow root login remotely? [Y/n]
    What should I answer?

    What is root login remotely? Should I still use MySQL if I chose n?

    I don't event know where is my hosting location.

    Thanks

    I suggest you to disable it if you are not sure. It will make you sites more secure
