Recommended Posts

I just completed my new wordpress site with iblogpro theme, but how secure is it? And how do I back up data? Are there any issues I should be aware of?

You've got quite a few options: 1) the expensive, but hassle free way is to sign up with VaultPress 2) the no-cost but bit of work solution is this... there are great plugins that can help you with security. I'll list the ones I use - fingers crossed they haven't been a problem in the nearly 2 years Ive been using them.Can get them through WP.org but I'm including the actual developer links. LockinLockdown Adds some extra security to WordPress by restricting the rate at which failed logins can be re-attempted from a given IP range http://www.bad-neighborhood.com/login-lockdown.html WP-DBManager Manages your Wordpress database. Allows you to optimize database, repair database, backup database, restore database, delete backup database , drop/empty tables and run selected queries. Supports automatic scheduling of backing up and optimizing of database. http://lesterchan.net/portfolio/programming/php/ WP Security Scan Perform security scan of WordPress installation. http://semperfiwebdesign.com/custom-applications/wp-security-scan/ Also read the following: 10 Steps To Protect The Admin Area In WordPress http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2009/01/26/10-steps-to-protect-the-admin-area-in-wordpress/ 12 Essential Security Tips and Hacks for WordPress http://sixrevisions.com/wordpress/12-essential-security-tips-and-hacks-for-wordpress/ There are more recent articles available, but these are a good grounding when you are just getting started. Good luck! Lisa J. Ellwood
