    Hey people
    My WP hase been hacked for over 2 times now. I am looking for the file in witch it saves all the account right, data and password, so I can protect it or make directories and put it in a other location.

    Does someone know where that is in my FTP?
    Thanks people

    It's a table in your MySQL database called wp_users.

    phpMyAdmin and you don't really protect a MySQL database as far as I know.

    Review Hardening WordPress.

    Create a new user with the Admin Role in your WordPress admin, then login as that new administrative user and delete the user 'admin' if you are of the mind.
