Wordpress security

If you are currently running a WordPress website, you should be asking yourself how secure is my site. WordPress is one of the most popular open source content management systems going around, and is also one of the most targeted.

But that doesn’t mean we should avoid such a great piece of software, we should just be more aware of whats going on around us. There are many ways you can harden your WordPress install; from .htaccess, plugins and basic admin settings.
