How To Secure Your Wordpress Blog

I have had two WordPress blogs hacked into formerly. That was at a time when I was doing virtually no internet advertising, and until I found time to handle the situation (weeks later), these sites were penalized at the main search engines. They weren't eliminated the ratings were reduced.



Finally, secure your wordpress site will tell you that there's not any htaccess in the wp-admin/ directory. You may put a.htaccess file into this directory if you wish, and you can use it to control access to the wp-admin directory from IP address or address range. Details of how to do this are available on the internet.

A simple way to keep WordPress safe the original source would be to use a few tools that are built-in. To begin with, do not allow people to list the documents in your folders, run a web host security scan and automatically backup your whole web hosting account.

It's a WordPress plugin. They're drop dead simple to set up, have all Resources the functions you need for a job such as this, and are relatively inexpensive, especially when compared to having to hire someone to have this done for you.

Now we are getting into matters. Whenever you install WordPress, you need to edit the file config-sample.php and rename it to config.php. You need to set up the database information there.

However, I recommend that you install the Login LockDown plugin in place of any.htaccess controls. Login requests will stop from being allowed from a specific IP address for one hour after three unsuccessful login attempts. If you do so, you may still get into your panel while and yet you have great protection against hackers.
