Securing my WordPress

I am not a security guru nor a hacker. But I listen to what people say about security, vulnerabilities, exploits etc. And I am aware that default installation of anything (including whole LAMP stack) is not secured.

Amazon’s guides about LAMP and WordPress contain some security topics. So your installation will not be completely ridiculous 🙂 But Amazon also has a nice guide for setting up SSL/TLS. And it worked perfectly for me! I followed everything step by step, got free SSL certificate from startssl.com and even tested my server using Qualys SSL Lab! Whoa!

I’ve also applied security guide from WPBeginner and installed security plugin to monitor my blog and alert me if something goes wrong! Interesting stuff!

  1. I blog quite often and I seriously appreciate your information. The article
    has really peaked my interest. I will book mark your site and keep checking for new
    details about once per week. I subscribed to your Feed too.

  2. Hey there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I
    could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

    1. I use “Google Captcha (reCAPTCHA) by BestWebSoft”. You can get it here. Unfortunately captcha can’t eliminate all spam, but reduces it significantly.
