    I agree, wholeheartedly!

    I don't install this as a Permanent feature of a site, just as a TEMPORARY tool to assist with getting one up and running. I should have qualified my posting with the following caveat:

    DELETE THIS AFTER USING ON ANY SITE!

    There'd be no steps for me. I'd tar up the directory, delete it, lock the account, and explain why later.
