BELOW ARE 10 SECURITY TIPS THAT YOU CAN EASILY IMPLEMENT ON YOUR WORDPRESS BLOG. PLEASE SHARE ONE OR MORE LIFE-SAVERS YOU USE PERMANENTLY TO HELP PROTECT YOURSELF FROM WORDPRESS SECURITY ISSUES.

1. WordPress Password – Are you still logging into your wp-admin page with the same default password that was emailed to you? If so, CHANGE IT! That password is only 6 characters and just numbers and letters. Make it complex and more than 10 characters if you can. Also, try not to use words, make it a nice jumble of letters, numbers, and symbols.

2. Protect From Search Engines – There is no need to have all of your filesWordPress files indexed by Google, so it’s best to block them in your robots.txt file. Add the following line to your list:Disallow: /wp-*

3. Install WordPress Database Backup Plugin – You always have to take regular backups of your file directories as well as the database. WordPress Database Backup plugin creates backups of your core WordPress tables as well as other tables of your choice in the same database.

4. Protect Your WP-Admin Folder – You can protect your WordPress admin folder by allowing access to it from a defined set of IP addresses. Everything else will bring up a Forbidden error message.

Also, you’re supposed to create a new .htaccess file inside your wp-admin folder, not replace the one at the root of your blog.

5. Upgrade WordPress – In general, keeping your WordPress installation up to date is a great way to avoid known problems. Do note that the lastest version, especially in the case of major upgrades, may cause more problems then it resolves. Read the rest of this entry »
