    Nice security tool for Wordpress

    Anyone here use WebsiteDefender ?

    It's beta and it's new yet it can be pretty useful. It's an online tool that monitor websites for hacker activity, malware and audits the security of web sites.

    You can use a single site with the free version.

    When my Wordpress got hacked I was looking for a good defense tool.

    Hey, I have a question about this,
    if I install this, is it automatically do everything to make the wordpress site more secured ? or I have to do something manually ?
    if need to do manually, what is that ?

    The site I posted is a scanning site It scan sites/blogs for vulnerabilities.

    SEObunny the plugin you posted looks very promising. Did it effect your blogs speed ?

    there are some steps you must do... but nothing on htacess file. Only you must change some FTP Numbers from 750 to 755...

    follow the read me file

    Those are permissions settings on the server. They are easily changed through your FTP client. Just right click on the directory or file and select permissions. Check the appropriate boxes. There will probably be a box on the permissions screen that shows the current selection so you can check and uncheck boxes until you have the right number and then click OK.

    These are actually permissions to access any file. If you want to change these restrictions, go to your cpanel and right click on your desired file, you will see a popup where you have different options. Choose change permission and set desired numbers like 750 to 755.

    For security point of view, i would suggest to change your security setting once and after doing your work, reshift to its original like 664. My blog was hacked one time because I have made everything 777 so never ever give this FTP access to any of your file.

    I am doing everything right to install BulletProof Security Plugin but when I am going to create default or secure .htaccess file, i am getting this error
    The file /home/dailytop/public_html//wp-content/plugins/bulletproof-security/admin/htaccess/default.htaccess is not writable or does not exist.
    Check that the file is named default.htaccess and that the file exists in the /bulletproof-security/admin/htaccess master folder. If this is not the problem click here for more help info.
    My permissions are set rightly to 755 but still not able to do anything. What I am doing wrong? Please help.
