    I just installed Better WP Security plugin. I was configuring it and it hung up. Now, my site is down, and I cannot get into WP. What do I do? Delete the plugin via FTP? Will that work?

    Anybody? I'm going to restore my site from a backup. So glad I used BackupBuddy before installing this plugin.

    Chatting with my host. They say it has something to do with how the plugin is interacting with something called Nginx. Host restarted Nginx, but that didn't do it. They are trying to disable Nginx now.

    They restarted Apache, I deleted the better-wp-security folder in the plugins folder and my site is backup. I am going to restore my database since I think this plugin probably has stuff in there I don't want. Needless to say, I will not be reinstalling this plugin.
