THANK YOU SO MUCH! This was the first video that took me step b step and
DID NOT matter what host or cPanel you had. Thanks for the simplicity. But

For WordPress newbies

Valerie Cudnik says:

BTW, your menu has a typo. Skip to Insall, should be Skip to Install I’ve
never seen a menu like that on a video… that’s AWESOME!

WPMU DEV says:

@WeTeachWP – Thanks for watching and thanks for the feedback. You are
correct. Most security professionals are saying that It is of little
value…if any.

WeTeachWP.com says:

Valerie, not all WP security experts agree that that is a particularly
helpful strategy.

WPMU DEV says:

Fixed. Thank You.

WPMU DEV says:

@Valerie Cudnik – Thank you for providing some great security advice. While
this is an excellent suggestion for locking down your backend, the idea of
this video was to follow closely to the WordPress instructions for manual
installation. We are looking at creating a video or two on building a
“Bullet Proof” WordPress site and I will be sure and have this included in
the conversation. Cheers!

erajuga says:

How’d you get to cpanel? I’ve tried their demo but it kept saying “This
feature is disabled in demo mode.”

WPMU DEV says:

@erajuga thank you for watching! You are unable to perform installations to
a cPanel demo site. You will need to purchase your own hosting account. To
access cPanel on a domain you own, you typically just need to type in the
URL associated with the account followed by /cpanel. If you need further
assistance we have a whole community of people that would be happy to help
you in our support forums listed in the video description.

Valerie Cudnik says:

Good stuff… all the way until you left the default prefix as “wp_”. As a
security measure this should be changed to something else… anything else.
Code injections depend on defaults.
