Good tips - I recently moved from a zeus server set-up to apache as you could not use .htaccess files at all. Trust me a nightmare!

Seeing how original post was made back in 2008. Had any of thos things been addressed by newer WP versions? Or should we still use the advise given by Matt?

These are some good tips. There are plenty of users who leave their sites as default who are usually the ones who get hacked. I have a list of some tips that I use for WordPress Security here: "http://www.otreva.com/blog/10-steps-to-securing-wordpress/

Protect your folder just add .htaccess file for every folder the .htaccess must have # disable directory browsing Options -Indexes Edit with notepad and save without extention like ".htaccess"

Matt, Some great tips here. However, in regards to restricting your ip address, what if you have a dynamic ip verses a static ip, would you still implement this?

Excellent post Matt. Its essential to keep your blog secure from being hacked and these tips are spot on! It took a little time to master the htaccess side of things but all is safe now....thanks for yet another great post to help everyone of us trying to get our sites at their best!

I would like to do the same to secure my blog. I will try the 1st Method right now (hope it works!) besides that I also use a plugin (didn't remember the name) it helps me from the brute force attacks in my Wp Admin login. Thank you for the tips Matt!

I think the very first point(Tip) is only for those people that are using static IP address. and Third one is really helpful. Because WordPress developer's main concern is to make It hack proof.

Definitely some interesting points here. There is definitely a security issue with the blogs in which I myself have had experience.
