The easiest, most effective way to secure WordPress. Improve the security of any WordPress site in seconds.
Love this plugin!
This works well and keeps the nasties out
so easy to use and protect really well:)
Srsly. Works really well.
Helped me a lot.
We found a code injection on our server, installed this plug-in and removed a lot of files from sites. Found the cause of it all, but Better WP Security has done a great job keeping out all the bad guys.
We installed this a couple months ago on 35 sites. Randomly, sites would crash and we'd see that the .htaccess files were HUGE. Every site that I kept seeing at the top of the process list had a huge htaccess file with all kinds of URL rewriting rules and massive IP blocklists. I guess they have just been getting bigger and bigger, and it seemed the plugin wasn't even creating them correctly as hundreds of lines were being duplicated over and over.
This caused thousands of php processes to run and soon, the server was crashing almost hourly. We finally figured this out. I did send a message to the developer that the .htaccess files were not right.
If you are a host and your sites are crashing and your server, too... this could be why. Just wanted to put this up in case this happens to you. Haven't seen any issues with Wordfence so far.
been trying to access using XML-RPC, and it just won't connect. hide wp-config is unchecked, hide blog header for flickr etc is unchecked...
I can't think what else would be blocking it... I even downloaded a plugin to enable it but BWPS is still blocking it.
edit: was my stupidity, I was accessing using typical permalinks...
instead of using the full path value.
Love this plugin. Will be adding it to every new website. Thanks for a job well done.
This utility has helped me control hackers. I would recommend this to everyone that has a WordPress website.
Does the job.
