The admin_user file contains the username and password of the webmaster 
and administrator of the site.

Vendor response:
From the README:
Protecting the files in the data directory is of the highest importance. 
Owners who will be running this package on Apache web server with 
htaccess file protection enabled can place this directory in the same 
location as the web accessible portion of their site. .htaccess files are 
provided with the directory to ensure browsing via the web will not be 
allowed. For those owners with Windows servers or for those not running 
Apache web server, it is highly recommended that the data directory be 
stored in a non-web accessible portion of your account.
