Hi - I was reading an article about how easy it is for hackers to get into WP and had noticed that many of the ip accessing my site were in Russia, so I went through WP tutorials to try to better secure my site. This was yesterday and today the site is viewable, but I can't access my dashboard (message says Page Not Found)
I was gettting lots of spam, so activated AKISMET.
I tried password protecting my admin folder, but this stopped the site from working, so removed the password.
I changed permissions on wp-admin, & wp-includes to make them writable by me only.
I installed MVIS Security Center (Plugin) and started going through their recommended changes.
I have mucked things up somehow but don't know where!! Help!
Wordpress is easy enough until you get into stuff like this. Aaaargh
