    Default Best Way to Make your Wordpress Blog 100% Secure

    Every Wordpress blogger wants to make his blog 100% secure so that no hacker could hack it. So, I had written a tutorial to do it:-

    1. First add the following line at the beginning of your .htaccess (located in public_html folder) file:-

    Options All -Indexes

    2. Change your user from admin to something else. If you donít know how to do it then follow the tutorial:-

    a. Goto Users>Add New and fill up the details.
    b. Logout from the admin account and login to the new account.
    c. Goto Users and delete the admin account.
    d. Check the Attribute all posts and links to: button and select the newly created user name in the drop down box.
    e. Now click on Confirm Deletion.

    3. Download the following plugins and install them:-

    WP Security Scan - It will perform a security check of your blog and tell you what shall be fixed in your blog.
    Chap Secure Login - It will send the password encrypted when you login for non-ssl blogs.
    Login LockDown - It will block the IP for (user set) minutes after giving (user set) login attempts to block Brute Force and Dictionary Attacks.

    If you donít know how to install Wordpress plugins then goto this link and follow the instructions given there.

    4. All always update your Wordpress version and plugins.

    5. Change your admin password weekly.

    6. Choose a unique password with uppercase, lowercase, numbers, spaces and special characters (e.g. K!$_h@N) and never use it in other websites.

    4. All always update your Wordpress version and plugins.
    This is extremely important. If you use Wordpress, be sure you are at the latest version 2.7.1, released on 10 February 2009 as there are numerous vulnerabilities for older versions.
