I am starting on wordpress, i see there MUST to use security plugins to protect the site... so your the wordpress user, can you please share your thoughts and plugins you use.
Yes, Wordfence is a good choice, and you should use hideWp, and of course set correct 644 permisions for your config file.
just want to remind you: the best security is to use as less plugins as possible due to the fact that the most invulnerables come from non-professional coders.
thank you all. if u have tutorials or codes or step to follow, please share...
i recommand you to ensure the bases of wordpress securtiy are made :
strong credientials passwords compenations , updating you wordpress version and plugins and install a wordpress firewall or antivuris
Ithems Security pro is the best word press security plugin for that but you have to pay for it it s not for free.
i prefer do not use any plugin but set the right permissions. the security plugins are also hackable... i'm an exploit coder, i recommends you to use less plugin as possible.
i'm translating my website from italian to english, and i'm writing it some security tips for wordpress and general php websites.
WordFence is quite good as it give you live traffic as well. Usefull to see if any bot are flooding your server. But you see and can also block the ip of any bot trying to crash your site. And lot of option like a human verification, at the login. So a bit more problematic for some bot and for me it gives good result.
Just 1 might not be perfect, but still better than none.
For a free security plugin i would sugest you use WP cerber its quite good
