For best security it's recommended to set your web server (apache/nginx/lightspeed) document root to /vvveb/public/ folder instead of default /vvveb/ root folder.
In this way only one php file index.php is exposed to the public minimizing the surface attack area and keeping plugin files away from public access thus avoiding potential plugin vulnerabilities.
To prevent brute force attacks for your admin login page it is recommended to change the default admin login path to a random text, this option works only if document root is set to public.
To install from command line run cli.php from root folder with correct arguments
php cli.php install module=index host=127.0.0.1 user=root password= database=vvveb admin[email]=email@example.com admin[password]=123456

You can also find nginx.conf for nginx and .htaccess for apache in the root folder if you configure your webserver manually.
