Prevent WP Hacking Using Secure Keys & Salts Configurations
You will need to use FTP to create this and if you're none the wiser how to use FTP, then please check out my previous FTP training tip here https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/how-to-us...
Today, we are going to learn how to check a file in FTP to see if it is correctly configured. If this file isn't correctly configured, you will be exposed to being hacked big time.
You will be shocked to learn that new WordPress sites (even with WA) aren't configured to prevent hacking. This is so important to do and to always double check that the file is constantly configured especially after WP updates.
If your Config file has zero Keys & Salts, you are open to someone, computers or robots placing their evil script there instead. Unique Keys & Salts are extremely powerful, they make it much harder for you to be hacked.
Please don’t let this frighten you, I say this because I fully remember how I felt when I first started changing php files.
