Reviews

Date / Time

How much harder can it be to allow setting of the date and time that the keys will be changed? How does one know when they have been changed?

Simple

Straightforward way to do a tedious but crucial thing. Will now happen regularly on my sites. Thanks.

Fantastic!

At first I had doubts this could kill my wordpress site, but it worked without any problems. Just one minor issue: If you move the location of the wp-config.php to root (which is a huge security improvement), this plugin won’t be able to change the keys anymore.
