Managing your WordPress security is vital to keeping your data, visitors, and site safe. There are several things you can do to protect your site from malicious visitors, but not all security options will work for every site.
Note: Give yourself about 30 minutes to complete these security enhancements.
These steps will walk you through all of the features of the Sucuri Security plugin for WordPress. You may not be able to activate some of the features of this plugin, as they are already handled by some hosting platforms.
Managing your WordPress security with this plugin has these different options:
- Verify WordPress is up-to-date
- Make the WordPress version private
- Block PHP in directories
- Remove WordPress readme file
- Enable DISSALLOW_FILE_EDIT in WordPress
Note: Each of these parts assume you already have the Sucuri security plugin installed on your WordPress site.
