[Plugin: Better WP Security] Shared SSL Certificate- Best Practices (2 posts)

    Love the plugin, my site is very secure. I have been reading about shared SSL and securing the wp-login page with SSL. I believe your SSL settings are for a dedicated SSL certificate.

    For people like me with a shared hosting and shared ssl certificate, I read to add this two lines to the wpconfig.php file:

    define('WP_SITEURL', 'https://www.mysharedssl.com');
    define( 'WP_CONTENT_URL', 'http://www.mywebsite.com/wp-content');

    Is this Best Pratice or do I also have to add to the wpconfig file?:

    define('FORCE_SSL_LOGIN', true);

    Now since I am hiding (redirecting) the wp-login location with your plugin, will it create a conflict?

    I need an answer for this question as well as I would prefer for the login, admin areas and some pages of my websites (i.e., http://sagenlandreth.com, http://thewritepieces.net, and http://fanblogs.net) to be very secure along with the other security features this plugin provides.

    I have one website that has been attacked by malware. I would like to make sure it never happens again. However, I'm having the hardest time ever getting rid of the problem on http://fanblogs.net, so it's in an indefinite maintenance mode until the problem is successfully resolved.
