How secure is wordpress?

Wed Oct 26, 2011 6:54 am

Im going to start up a blog ( or at least actually update mine ) with php and general computer stuff I learn from day to day.

Anyway..

Im thinking of using wordpress, Mainly because ive got too much work on and cant be bothered to write my own platform..

How secure is wordpress on linux?
Should i jail it?

I see a lot of sites being hackedthat use wordpress and dont really fancy my server being screwed over..

Any thoughts?

WordPress is one of the most popular website platforms used by developers these days, and with good reason – it’s optimized well for search engines, offers many flexible customization options, and is easy for business owners to maintain, regardless of their level of HTML knowledge.

Wordpress is an awesome platform for bloggers. Its intended for blogging use mainly. Its user friendly, SEO Friendly, easy to install, highly customizable, open source platform, and there are many plug-ins available which makes this functional and secure.

I've used WordPress for many sites - my own and those of clients - and I've found it to be very secure.

There are regular security updates and that's the key to keeping it secure - always update your plugins and WordPress itself whenever you see the update reminders in the admin area.

Wordpress is the most widely used blog software all over the world. It's more vulnerable to malicious attacks, so the security of Wordpress is also a very important issue. In WordPress, the wp-config.php file is the file that stores the database information that WordPress needs to connect its circuit, so-to-speak. This file contains the name, address and password of the MySQL database that stores all of your user info, blog posts and other important content.

I just picked up a training course helping to configure some files to increase WordPress security. Strange thing I discovered though, many people don't get around to even changing the default "admin" which is the front door!

I wouldn't say that Wordpress is insecure or something. Each platform can be hacked someway and I don't think that other are safer than Wordpress, which in fact is very enjoyable in use.
