The easiest, most effective way to secure WordPress. Improve the security of any WordPress site in seconds.
Do not install this. I even talked to Bluehost support regarding this issue. It was causing my WordPress hosted on Bluehost to crash multiple times a day. This was causing my Bluehost server to throttle a whole lot, resulting in "jailig" my server in Bluehost temporarily.
DO NOT INSTALL if you have Bluehost. I'm not sure about other hosts.
Do not use this plugin. I was locked out of my WP dashboard for two days until I figured out it had caused havoc with my .htaccess file. Once I replaced the file, I was finally able to get back in.
updates tend to crash my site or lose all my events. no response from authors on how to fix.
I had blind faith in this plugin but we recently -after months running into huge, very huge server loads- discovered that WP better Security caused all these loads and complete dedicated server downtime (!!!) ... A BIG BUG/ISSUE!
It seems that this is caused by the filecheck php file:
PHP Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in ..../wp-content/plugins/better-wp-security/inc/filecheck.php on line 55
Not sure yet but it may also have to do with some setting, I have other sites where there are no problems yet.
I've been using Better Security for months and loved it. I have it installed on multiple sites.
Two days ago my client's server crashed on a very important day when she was launching a product and had a high-profile google hangout. This day would have brought a lot of new traffic to her website. Instead, there was zero traffic because Better Security overloaded and crashed the godaddy server.
I nearly lost my job because this plugin.
Please do not install, it's not worth it. Also, it doesn't clean up after itself so you are stuck with a permanently altered website.
Completely ruined my site, even uninstalling wouldn't get it back, had to restore everything from backup.
I tried in conjunction with BuddyPress and bb press. It seems as if half of the options do not work
After using it for some time, the plugin crashed my site
Never transfer a domain while having Better WP Security activated. The plugin will lock you out completely and everything will be down without you having any chance of access. Simply deleting it on the server wont help because it holds htaccess as a hostage. No matter how good this plugin does its job - things like this should NEVER happen!
After making one small change I suddenly was unable to access wp or my website - requiring urgent tech support. First thing will do is delete this plug-in once I am up and running.
