Securing WP installation
I’ve been reading up on securing my WordPress installation and have a few questions:
I followed a much-recommended idea of changing the database prefix from “wp-” to something else.
I’m trying to find how to change the name of wp-login.php but cannot find how.
1) How can I change the name of wp-login.php so that I can access the admin area through “mysite.com/comein” for example (instead of “mysite.com/wp-admin” or “mysite.com/wp-login”)
2) Will these (wp-login.php & the database prefix) be affected/changed back to standard on a WP update?
On http://digwp.com/2010/07/wordpress-security-lockdown/ they recommend 5 security plugins, namely:
WP File Monitor
WP Security Scan
Ultimate Security Check
Block Bad Queries
Wouldn’t so many plugins for the same reason (security) conflict between each other?
Hope that this question will evolve to help newbies understand a bit more on securing WP installations!
