That's completely fine, there won't be any issues with that.

Delete portal.php.

IIRC the pin is hard coded so all you have to do is open the file to see the pin.

It really depends on how much activity your forum has. Once a week should suffice for most installations.

Thank you Nathan Malcolm but deleting the portal.php directly..is it okay?

Yes, it's perfectly fine. It's not a dependency so MyBB can run fine without it.

As you seem to be a new forum admin, there are other basic security measures to take, such as renaming the admin directory to something unique for your site (You will need to update inc/config.php) and then installing the fake admin mod. Except when updating and / or installing MyBB and mods, the database user should not have permission to create, alter, or delete tables.
