QuickOnlineTips.com has a list of what they believe to be the best nine security plugins to use with WordPress. Some of the usual suspects have made the list such as WP Security Scan. I’m not sure if it’s good to mention this or not, but I don’t use any of those plugins on the list. What I do use is a strong password, .htaccess blocking of folder indexes, a renamed admin account and a few other little quirks.
In the process of making your WordPress uber secure, I’m wondering if anyone out there has hosed their blog by making it too secure? Maybe you installed the wrong security plugin or perhaps the combination of security plugins created a recipe for disaster? If this has happened to you, please share your stories in the comments, I’d love to read them.
