One of the first things you do when you set up a WordPress site is work on the colours. It's time to add data and text. But what about WordPress security? Don't allow the fun of setting a site that is new up distract you you're putting online.
By default, the latest version of WordPress is pretty darn secure. Anything that might have been added to any fix malware problem plugins has been considered by the development team of WordPress . In the past , WordPress did have holes but most of them are stuffed up.
I protect an access to important files on the blog's server by putting an index.html file in the particular directory, which hides the files from public view.
While it's an odd term, it represents a task. We're not only being obsessive-compulsive here: my blog servers go down every day, despite their promises of 99.9% uptime, and if you've had this happen to you, you understand the panic is it can cause.
Another step to take to make WordPress secure is to upgrade WordPress to the latest version. The main reason for this is that with every upgrade there also come fixes for security holes making it essential to update.
But realize that security is. Don't just be the type, consider steps to begin today protecting yourself. Do not let Joe the Hacker make your life miserable and turn all that you've worked hard.
