I'm about to make my first install of WP.
Is there any special actions I should take to prevent hackers in attacking my site?
The install of was at my host with cPanel/Fantastico and is version 2.0.5. WP was installed more or less automatically I only had to create the DB and user accounts.
I've tried Joomla earlier and with that CMS several lines are added to .htaccess in order to make hacking via scripts more difficult.
Is anything like that needed with WP?
Of course I will need to stay current with the WP versions and backup my site on a regular basis and have a rollback plan if my site would get hacked.
I'm just wondering if there are preventive measures I should take.
